transmission sleeve (megatronic sleeve)
 
Anyone know how big a job it is for replacing this megatronic sleeve on an X5 specifically? They're saying it's leaking. I've seen posts about it in the 5-series forum and people there are saying it's simple to get to, so it's simple to change. Does the transmission need to be dropped in the X5's case? Any other complications etc.?

Also have a valve cover gasket that is leaking... is that also a simple job?

By simple I mean like a 1hr job on the clock.

You need to drop the pan to replace the sleeve. Need to be extremely careful. Valve cover not to bad depending on what engine you have.

since you put it that way - do you suppose an independent garage who works on BMWs would be able to handle it? Is it a common job? Or should I stick with the dealer (despite their claim of long hours)?

Go with a good Indy. You will get the same if not better service at a cheaper price.
