If you clean it at the block and put on some sealer it helps,the only way to fix it if your asking this ? would be to pay a VOLVO tech to do it correct or live with it it is very common and is normally not a big leak

How to replace volvo xc90 5t turbo O ring

It's not that hard. If you put the car on a lift or jackstands you can crawl under and see where the return line goes into the block. The leak will be obvious.
Get the seal and remove the line and roll on the new seal and put the pipe back into the hole after you clean it carefully.

That's really all there is to it.

What is the reason for oil entering in the inlet manifold of a CRDE engine

OIl from the pcv valve from the oil being retained in the rocker cover from the oil not being allowed to run back to the sump.. Blockage at the oil return line to the sump from the turbo allowing oil pressure to leak past the seals on the turbo shaft. Check for kinked hose or hose failing internally closing it off

Not enough oil pressure to run turbo keeps burning it out 99 passat 1.8

Oil pressure at idle should be 2 bar and at 2000 rpm 3 - 4.5 bar. Verify the engine oil pressure.

The 1.8t engines have problems with sludge because of the turbo scorching the oil. If engine oil pressure is good you may want to clean or replace the oil supply and return lines and the turbo.

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo

It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.
