TDI(s): '03 Golf
Default Coolant above EGR on hood

Hey guys, Just got my '03 tdi golf on the road after a turbo replacement. Drove her about 150 km today. Aside from a p0234 code which I've been reading into everything seems like its going okay. I got home and popped the hood just to check on things. I noticed coolant in the hood liner above the EGR. Also noticed some settling around the lip of the valve cover. Level doesn't seem to have gone down very much if any. Fired up the car and couldn't see a leak anywhere. I got the wife to come out and rev it up a bit and still couldn't see the source of the leak.

Any ideas?

There is a small hose on the back of the EGR cooler that may be deteriorating and spraying once system pressure ramps up.
