Installing subframe

The cost is going to be labor and will vary among repair shops. If the repair shop has the proper equipment, in real time should not take more than 2 hours, book time will be slightly higher, 3.8 hrs by Mitchell Labor Guide. So you just need to multiply by the shops shop rate, In our shop its $60/hr, so we would charge you $120.00 labor. Some shops don't like putting in customer parts and charge much higher - so beware of that. And in some cases parts get broken because they are rusted and need to be replaced. I would suspect you will have to install new Sway Links, since its common for them to break upon removal, they are inexpensive - around $10-$20 which would include both sides. Hope this helps.......Pete

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.

How do i replace the timing belt on the volvo s40

this is a difficult job to do if you've never chaged a timing belt before, but not impossible for the novice. I recommend that you get a book for you car and follow the directions very closely. do not get your info from this site. even though there are experienced mechancs that can guide you thru it. you need that book. also if you replace the belt replace all the components of the timing system, including the water pump, if it's in there. you only want to do this one time. labor intensive

What to pay for a 35,000 mile checkup

The problem is that the shop charges is based on what they call "book rate". It's an actual labor guide that determines how long a job takes. They are not supposed to "add" hours if they go over the amount of hours allowed to do a particular job. Based on this labor guide, the shop will multiply the amount of hours a job SHOULD take by the shop's labor rate and this is the amount billed to a customer. For example, if a water pump replacement shows in the labor guide takes 2.0 hours, multiply by $75.00(this would be the shop's labor hourly rate) the amount for labor billed to customer is $150.00. Do some shopping around and you'll find out who would have the most reasonable shop rate for your particular job.
