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.
