    E Class, 320 CDI, 2003, 93,000 Miles.

    Oil leaking from Turbo charge cooler inlet and outlet pipes.
    Breather is clean not blocked.
    Problem noticed as a single drip is noticed on garage floor after over night parking.
    Oil level is not dropping and top up is never required.
    Car drives OK no lack of power but fuel consumption has increased.

    Any suggestions to fix would be appreciated.

    Quite rare for these to leak any quantity of oil, most just look damp and don't drip from the seals. Has the car been overfilled with oil as this can push a bit through the seals?

    I wouldn't worry too much about this, a quick clean off ith a rag every few thousand miles should solve the problem.
