The rubber tubing does deteriorate with age and could well be the problem, a description of fault 17958 = http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/17958/P1550/005456

There is also a small section of hose hidden inside the engine ECU which may also need to be replaced.

Also check actuator on turbo is moving freely (full travel without sticking)

travel on the actuator will slowly fail after time and use, check that it moves freely
