I doubt you could get the carpet up w/o disturbing the pad.
On my AT34, they pulled up the carpet, leaving the pad then put down the new carpet a few days later. Easy pleasie Took about a week, out and in.
Cost, a bit over $1500. I got a discount because the carpet was not exactly the color I ordered.
If they take the pad out to put in a thicker pad, figure about $3000 plus.
