Hello,
I noticed this morning the intake part of the turbo is covered with oil. It seems that it's leaking from the breather hose that's connected to the intake side of the turbo. Does anyone know whether this would be covered by the Dieselgate warranty?* The car is 2015 Jetta TDI with 47K on the odometer.
Thank you in advance for the info.

Did you make sure it's seated fully/clipped on to the heating element? The hose connects to the heater, that then connects to the hard elbow via a one-time fit connection.
That whole elbow piece is about $150 and very simple to do yourself in the case that the leak is actually from the connection of the heater to the elbow.
