300tdi turbo: Is it on the way out?

Hi all

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

I have a disco 1 300tdi which has done just over 200 000km. I am the second owner and so far the turbo has not been replaced. I recently cleaned out the intercooler and noticed quite alot of oil in there. I also checked the turbo fan whilst I was about it and noticed that there is about 4mm of play (up and down) on the shaft. I was wondering if this was excessive and if this means that the turbo is about to go? I have also noticed a whistling sound recently when the turbo kicks in- not very loud but still noticable. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
