If the rear oil seals are in good condition and you always have oil in the chaincase I won't worry about the bearings, they can last up to 10k miles. Got 8400 on my VE now without a problem. But they aren't that hard to change out, easiest way is to take the chaincase completely off.

You can't change the seals without removing the chaincase, and you shouldn't bother changing bearings that are working without changing the seals, so...

Remove the chaincase. The bearings are a serious press fit in and out. You will probably damage the seals in the process.

I do agree that with good oil and good seals, they can last 10,000 miles or more.

Be very careful not to damage the seals when you reinstall the driveshaft.
