The cost to replace the 3 motor mounts on 2003 Nissan Murano
The motor mount may be found at a local part store or can be ordered from them. Often they are less expensive than a dealer because they are an aftermarket manufactured part to fit your car. As to the labor, Shop rates vary depending on where you are located in the country.
They could be $75.00 an hour, $100.00 an hour, I don't know. Additionally, some shops use estimating guides just as guides and may figure more labor than is in the book. The book is not always right. Additionally, A technition may run into extenuating problems in putting your mounts in which may take more time than the average job.
Keep in mind that a labor guide is figured with labor working on new cars with new parts.which haven't been exposed to dirt, grease, rust, collapsed parts which require more labor to gain access to some of the mounting bolts. We run into splash shields which have been shaved partially off because the car has been run up on curbs when it is parked. This makes it hard to put a socket or wrench on.This hardware must be replaced.which is an additional cost to an original estimate both in labor and in parts.Get the picture now? An estimate may usuallly be close, typically within 10% of the original quote.I hope I may have answered your question adaquately enough to understand that there are many things depending on where you are located in the country which will affect the cost of replacing your mounts. Call 3 shops and get an idea. Usually they will figure a cut and dry, no problems anticipated estimate and compare them. They should udually be in the same ball park. If someone is really cheap, I would not take my car there. It is usually a sign that rthey are cutting corners somewhere to give such a low quote. Good luck.
