Exclamation Some kind of leak on a 2004 Passat TDI

I pulled my car (2004 Passat TDI) into the garage last night and this morning I noticed a few drops of what looks like oil, I'm not really sure what it is because its not under the oil pan and was wondering if anyone on here knew what it might be.

This is a picture of directly above the leak.

And this is a picture of the oil looking fluid that dripped out, This is on the passenger side and about a foot from the front of the car and a foot from the passenger side.


Thanks for any help you guys can give me, Its greatly appreciated!

Oil inside the IC pipes is leaking out. Completely normal for oil being inside, not uncommon.

How many miles on the car? It looks like the turbo outlet hose has leaking seals, or maybe a hole where it rubs on a wire harness. Pretty common on these beasts.

If it is the seals, replace them...and the worn clips. If it is the hose it needs to be replaced; it can't really be patched. The good news is that the price on this hose has really come down in the last year. Used to be ~$300 and I last saw it for a little over $100. Guess who bought one at the old price?
