freightliner/sprinter 2004 turbo bearings

Im told the bearings are going out, there was a squeek between 2100 and 2800. there is oil dripping from the turbo near the front underneath. oil inside the upper hose top of engine by the injectors (large hose 3" or so).
My question is: must i remove the turbo from the exhaust manifold? there are three very rusty hexagon headed bolts connecting to the manifold. they are probably froze... Id like to do this without removing the engine . it runs fine, no smoke. 20 + MPG fuel responsive still...

so far ive been able to remove the cartridge from the cast turbo housing, that after removing resonator/actuator and alternator. anyone attempts this you must have 1/4 drive E torx sockets and 12 mm half moon wrench for the manifold to turbo bolts. I do not have that casting removed yet, just ordered a half moon wrench. i found gentle heating with acetylene torch # 3 tip helped to dislodge the cartridge. Now that is off i can access the rusty manifold bolts, hoping heat will loosen them. one can buy the cartridge only but i would rather replace the entire unit.
