Got mine from EB Spares, fitted it myself. You have to gently heat the camshaft where the variator screws in (I used a hot air gun) and apply quite a bit of leverage to twist them apart. A pipe wrench and a steel pipe to extend the handle while the variator was secured via bolts clamped in a bench vice did the trick for removing the old and screwing back the new variator. Use permanent thread lock compound when screwing in the new variator and tighten it to buggery.
