First i would have to say,it should be a flat fee,plus part,s that way you know what you are spending before they do the job.Hourly they may drag out job to make more money.Always get firm price on work done like this,yes dealer,s and other mechanic,s love you to pay by hour,but i alway,s like to see what,s coming,the only way to deal is flat pricing.

There is no real true time. Do you mean the posted book time that most mechanics use? It's probably the 5hrs. That why I always get quotes for big repairs, it can vary from mechanic and garage. Dealerships are always more.
