The instrument cluster sells for around $1205 (this is Dealer-suggested retail. You may be able to find one in a local salvage yard for about half this price. Most reputable salvage yards will test the cluster before selling it and also warranty the cluster.). The Labor Time Guide calls for a half-hour to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour.
