wow - you've done well to get 70K out of your turbo. Have a look under the bonnet and see if your intercooler is going too. Its worth getting the turbo looked at by a turbo diesel specialist, as it could just be bearings, which can be replaced. Once the turbo blows there is some risk to the engine, as the pieces can go into the intercooler along with a good amount of engine oil. If you do not shut it down quickly they can get smaller pieces into the engine, again with engine oil, the engine can actually run on this oil and will Run away even with the ignition off. These pieces are usually what causes engine damage.

Replacement turbos are not as expensive as you might think, but if you let it run it will almost certainly wreck your intercooler too.

Hi Tyson. You have done well getting someone to fit it for that price. I had mine repaired at Midland Turbo and done the removal and re-fitting myself. If I could have got it done for that price I would gladly have paid it.
