Re: my evaporator is leaking
i agree its a fair price. I agree on the hours quoted, not smally's.
No offence to smally, but i make an allowance for aftermarket items like alarms.
I don't know why, but auto-elecs don't care, they just whack things in and make em work, with no though to repairability.
taking this factor out, for someone with experience on type, smally's hours are fair.
keep in mind, most shops these days have moved away from quotes and gone to estimates...a small change in terminology yes...but a big change legally.
anywhere from 6-10 hours plus parts would be a reasonable expectation...given we don't know what accessories have been fitted...or HOW!!
