Default 2001 S80 T6 Oil Leaks

I just bought a 2001 S80 T6 and had it inspected by the dealer to discover the following:

Turbo drain seals leaking: $516
Breather box seals leaking: $609
Dip stick tube seal leaking: $64

I got it for a good price so I kind of expected this. I'd like to do as much of the work that I can but I can't find anything on this site that pertains to the turbo drain seals or breather box seals so I'm guessing the terminology is different. Does anyone know if these things are DIY-type jobs or should I just fork over the $1100 and have the Volvo dealer do it?

Its not that bad if you can work on cars.
The Vent box is pretty easy you have to remove the intake to get to it.
You need to remove the dipstick tube doing the vent box.

The turbo return lines I might leave to the dealer they are a major pita.

Thanks for the advice Tech. Are there any instructions out there for getting to the vent box? I'm willing to give it a try but wonder what to look out for. For example, are there torque specs for the intake manifold?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't have a walk through there might be one out there.
I use a 1/4 ratchet and socket and tighten and never have any problems.
