Eh... yea...I dunno what kind of shop you go to.So i'm probably looking at 350-370 total with maintenance charge from the auto repair? If only I could work on cars myself haha
If he runs into issues, like I did this weekend, he's screwed... these cars are getting old now. Mine is an '06 with 63k mi.It really isn't hard at all. If you had some basic tools such as clamps, sockets, screw driver, and pb blaster and a friend who had done this before to show you how to do it on one side of the car, you could do it yourself on the otherside. You definitely save quite a bit of money doing this yourself.
