Failed onboard Onboard

Hi all.

Seems I have a flakey onboard charger.
Fails after 8-10 minutes of 3 phase AC charging (does this across multiple destination chargers... but manages to charge slowly using the mobile charger).
Will test a DC supercharger tomorrow and if that works, it would seem to be the onboard charger (?).
Have tried reboots of everything... waiting to hear back from Tesla service.

Just curious if anyone has seen a model 3 (P+) onboard charger fail and whether it is a big job to replace?
(Car is one week old... would hope they don't pull it apart too much!)
