XTYPE BEARING REPAIR VS ENGINE REPL

2003 Jaguar X-Type

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2003 Jaguar X-Type 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

My 2003 XType started making mechanical noises in the engine. The dealer thinks it has a bad bearing and would replace the engine because they don't repair them. Is a replacement necessary or is a repair possible and a reasonable alternative?

Replacement bearings (i'm presuming crank) are possible. It all depends on how badly the bearings are and whether they have destroyed the crankshaft also?
