Costs

I have to have one of my side mirrors replaced. I know how much that will
cost me - but they didn't tell me anything about labor. In general, what
is the labor cost for something like that? Does anyone know?
Time for regular matinence! How much does a tire rotation usually cost? I
found a coupon for the oil change - if anyone here lives in the Metrowest
or Worchester counties of MA, search the Ford website for coupons for
things like reduced prices on oil changes.
And I need to get another key made. Mine has a computer chip in it, and
copies can't be made at a hardware store. How much will that cost me if I
take it to the dealership?
If anyone can answer any of these questions, please let me know!

You can replace the mirror yourself, it's not at all difficult, thanks
to my 16 year old son and a car/garage interface, I know this. If you
aren't comfortable attempting the job yourself it will certainly take
no more than an hour to have it done. Why don't you just pick up the
phone and call a Ford dealership or an independent shop or two, and ask
them how much they will charge you to replace the mirror? They're the
ones who will be doing the work, not someone on this newsgroup.

You can have copies of your PATS key cut at a hardware store, but you
can't buy the key blank there. I've bought suitable PATS key blanks on
ebay for < $15 including shipping. You can program the new key yourself
if you have two working keys, the procedure is in the owner's manual.
