Default Is the bearing in the bellhousing replaceable on a 99 T45?

The shop thats fixing my transmission told me in other years the bearing can be pressed out. In 99, it's part of the bellhousing, the whole bellhousing has to be replaced, and the cheapest they could get one was $250. I already had them take the transmission apart. After the probably $250 in parts, $250 to rebuild it, and $250 for the bellhousing, I'd end up spending $750 on a transmission thats just fixed, and not even Rebuilt.
Do I have any other options with this transmission?

which bearing are you talking about? the throw out bearing can easily be taken off and replaced (assuming the transmission is already out of the car). the pilot bearing on the rear of the engine can also be replaced. idk what other bearing you could be talking about

the throwout bearing can be replaced... i have one sitting right next to me out of a 3650 and also one for a tko500... dont see why the t45 one wouldnt come out when the 3650 is about the same design

I believe its the bearing that goes around the input shaft (which broke on mine)

It can be replaced on the 99 t-45? It appears to be in its own enclosed slot in the transmission. I didn't believe the shop at first, but when I looked at it, I didn't see any way to separate the case to get it out.
