    Has anyone removed the torque tube to replace the bearings, or had it done, if so, about how long did it take/ what was charged for labor? Did the entire transmission need to be removed to do so?

    Trying to get an idea if it's something worth doing myself or taking to a shop/ dealer...

    Thanks!!

    It's a reasonable bit of graft. Disconnect transaxle and move it rearward and you can get the TT out but you may have the inner nylon/plastic sleeve hang up on the output shaft so will require fiddling to clear. As for the bearings, they're a proprietary Ferrari item, so you're stuck buying from them directly or Superformance in the UK. Watch transaxle once disconnected from TT and mounts, it's a heavy sonofabitch so make sure it's well supported before jockeying it back.
