you will have to take the unit out of vehicle to check for endplay and bearing noise . also if not working properly it will proberly be cause of lack of oil to the turbo itself . so you will need to check oil line to turbo is not broken or crushed . otherwise the turbines on the exhaust side maybe burned out . only way to check is removal of unit .

Yes it sounds like your power steering belt needs changed also you need to check the power steering fluid and the tension of the belt whereas the belt might be loose. If this is accomplished via a belt tensioner then the tensioner probably needs replaced also.

Oil in the distributor will do that. But why is oil getting in there? The positive crankcase ventilation(PCV valve) should prevent this. Plus the should be one seal on the distributor and /or cam. I would pull the distributor and check for sloppiness. Also check for the cap seal. Oil could be from the valve cover.

The most likely cause of most problems electrics on that model is the poor earth connection on the rear light cluster. There is a simple fix which you can find on the nissan primera owners club website. www.npoc.co.uk. The fix is easy to do and involves putting another earth from the rear cluster to the bodywork where there is an existing bolt. It solved my issues.

This can be from a failed rear main gear shaft bearing , an extension housing bush worn out and or teeth on the synchro dog being worn to a taper and no longer parallel. Mostly the rear extension housing can be removed with out the necessity of removing the box. but if the bearing has failed then the box will have to come out .

This could be one of two things. We will first start with a wheel bearing. When you are driving, does the growling noise get louder as you go faster. Some times is will sound like you have a helicopter flying beside you depending on how bad the bearing is. The second thing that could be causing the growling noise is your transmission. There are also bearings inside your transmission that could be causing the noise. If you have a cvt transmission, you have a 120,000 mile warranty and can have it repaired at no cost to you. You will just have to go to a nissan dealership.
