Why are garages reluctant to carry out a turbo replacement when under an insurance backed warranty?

I guess it's because of the tight restrictions on labour charges imposed by the warranty insurer. Also, the turbo bearing oil feed and oil return pipes need to be replaced, which the warranty may not pay for, but if they aren't the new turbo could fail within 1000 miles.
