It depends on how much time it takes for them to do it.
But, I know from experience that the brake lines might cost $120 for one brake line, and the resonator might cost anywhere from $100 ro $150.

Prices will vary from garage to garage, however.

I live in a small town where the mechanics practically give their labor away ($38 per hour).

In the city the labor is more like $80 per hour. So, you can guess the variation that one might pay for the same service on the same car but different garages.

I would like to know the average price for having a reputable shop replace all four brake pads & rotors on my 2001 honda passport


Difficult to answer as parts prices vary from dealer to brake shop to shop. Hours would be fairly constant so best to let you fingers do the walking and ring various brake shops and get quotes for what you want including the Honda dealer as sometimes genuine parts can be cheaper than after market in the long run

How much should it cost to replace calipers and pads on a 2005 6cyl 2wd 4 Runner?


If they order the parts from rockauto its about $630-700 in parts. $50-60 front and rear brake pads, $ 100 -115 2 better front rotors, $100 for better rear rotors, $90 for each rear caliper, 100-125 per front caliper, $10 for each rubber brake line. (The caliper prices include a core fee that you would get back $30-40 per caliper returning the old caliper, but you pay the shipping fees). The ballpark prices also include the additional shipping costs. Labor should be around 2-2.5hrs. So depending on the shop it would be $50-60/hr so total cost $100-150 for the labor. So total would be somewhere around $730-850. You can just have the one caliper replaced, you do not need to replace them all. I would get new rotors on whichever axle (front or rear) the stuck caliper is on and not get the rotors cut, because the faulty caliper could have warped the rotor. Another possibility is that it could just need a new rubber brake line. When my calipers locked on one of my classic trucks, I just replaced the old rubber line and it was good to go. -Fawkes

Average cost for replacing rear brakes on 2000 Bravada


labor rates and pricing vary greatly town to town state to state. You best option would be to call around your local area to see what the going rate is for a standard rear brake service and a couple of rotors.

Typically the rear caliper slides freeze and the calipers need to be replaced.

You can expect from $200 to $800 dollars depending on what you actually need.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How much to replace the condenser on the toyota celica 2001 GT? The condenser has a hole in it and needs to be replaced. Been quoted $700? Is that a fair price since the cost of a condensor is $150....


Labor to remove and install, a/c condenser and drier is 2.5 hrs, same time for drier bolts to condenser, so will have to come out anyway to replace condenser, To evacuate a/c system and recharge, takes 1 lbs of freon, 1.4 hrs, total labor time X there hourly rate = your cost for labor, the parts price is good, the labor time is from Mitchell labor guide, this is some thing repair shops used to be fair with customer's when it comes to charging labor.

I am planning to buy 2000 audi A4 with 95000 miles on it? What do I need to check on this car before I drive off the lot?


This info is from MSN autos.

Occasional problems on this vehicle, 4-cylinder engines only, are failures of the Engine, Engine Vacuum Hoses and the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. Failure of the Engine is caused because the engine oil gels. When proper maintenance schedules for oil changes are followed, oil gelling should not occur. Audi has issued an 8 year unlimited mileage goodwill repair for this condition. The cost to replace the MAF Sensor is estimated at $380.00 for parts and $60.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Engine Vacuum Hoses is estimated at $25.00 for parts and $65.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Engine is estimated at $4,775.00 for parts and $845.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor is estimated at $500.00 for parts and $52.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

Occasional problems on this vehicle are failure of the Comfort Control Module, with 4-cylinder engines only, and failure of the 4-Way Hazard Flasher. The cost to repair the Comfort Control Module is estimated at $290.00 for parts and $65.00 for labor. The cost to replace the 4-Way Hazard Flasher is $31.50 for parts and $91.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

My mechanic told me that the "plate" that holds my rear brakes together, including the parking brake is bad. He said that it will require taking the axel off in order to replace and the job will cost 6 to...


I'm not sure what he meant by the "plate" when you got the diagnosis. Maybe he said "rotor" or "caliper" instead?

Anyway, here's some reasonable ranges for parts and labor for a few brake-related jobs on a 2001 blazer 4WD. If you combine jobs, the labor price might go down (since the mechanic doesn't have to do all the steps for each job) but the parts prices are going to be constant:

Replace rear calipers:
parts - $150 - $500, depending on if you get used or new parts
labor - $100 - $150

Replace rear brake shoes and resurface (smooth off) rotors:
parts - $40 - $130, depending on performance vs economy shoes
labor - $200 - $250

Replace rear brake shoes and replace rear rotors:
parts - $130 - $400, again depending on performance vs economy parts
labor - $150-$190

None of those look like "remove the rear axel" kinds of labor rates, so either your mechanic is full of beans, or I'm not guessing correctly what he has identified as the problem.

Post back if you can get more details on this "plate" -- specifically the exact name of the part being replaced -- and I can get you ballpark repair costs.


Disclaimer time -- repair prices vary widely within a city, and vary even more from one part of the country to another. Without your ZIP code, I can only give general price estimates, and your region may be 50% higher or lower than my figures.

Clutch when out


Labor time about 6hrs, labor rates vary greatly, here that would be $700, parts another $200-300 depending on how much the shop adds on to the parts cost, best thing to do here is buy the parts yourself, you can get them at a very reasonable cost from an internet site called www.rockauto.com, name brands at a 30%-40% discount off local prices, have used them many times over the last 10 years, they are very fast on shipping.
