HelloCustomer are you looking for a part and labor price?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes to estimate if the dealership is quoting too much for those repairs
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 4 years ago.
Okay. For the outer tie rode ends you are typically looking at about $120 per tie rod with about $75 each for labor. You will need an alignment also. THe cv boots are typically going to cost about $200 each. The wiper motor for the front costs about $400 to have replaced. Let me know if you need more help.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

you are on target for the tie rod ends. Now the cv boots @ 200 are you including labor?

 

Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 4 years ago.
Yes I am. It is possible that they are charging more. This is what they should charge for the boots, but I have seen this come out as much as $300-400. If that is the case you can have the entire axle replaced by an independent shop for less.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
They are charging 608 for the cv boots. 325 for the tire rod and 265 for washer pumps.
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 4 years ago.
Is this the price for both or one tie rod? You can get a much better price for cv boots at an independent shop. As for the washer pump, this is pretty average. The previous price I gave you was for the wiper motor.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
This is for both. Sooo... I plan to negociate the price now. But, how do you recommend I handle the cv boot price if they do not negociate. Because it in right as we speak sitting at the dealership service yard.
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 4 years ago.
I would ask them how much to replace the alxe. You can typically purchase new axles for this vehicle for about $150. So I would try negotiating it. It calls for a couple of hours of labor which should be about $175 for labor and the boots should only cost about $30 each.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
BobbySS thank you so much for the guidance I've learned lots between surfing and comfirming with you. Wish you were in Bakersfield, Ca I would take the vehicle to you.
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 4 years ago.
No problem. I would work on them as these prices are high. You should be able to get a better price especially if they want the business. If you need anything else let me know.
