They just like your money. My son'* 97 needed a pump and dealer quoted $750.00! Mechanic friend that does work at home did it for $165.00 including the parts costs.

If you have done this enough times on an L36 it could be done in 30 minutes to an hour... The cleaning of the surfaces takes longer than the disassembly...

$165 is a pretty fair price
