So I am experiencing a vacuum leak according to VAGCOM, but pretty much replaced all the hoses except the long one that leads to the turbo.

I do have a loss in power yet I can hear the turbo spooling. My mechanic tells me its vanes are sticky or something is seized (..?) but my question is to what extent is the turbo saveable/rebuildable? (I understand its too general of a question but appreciate any help that comes my way!)

Thanks,
Startering.
