Installing a passenger side mirror?
 
some dipshit kicked/punched my side mirror off and I had to go to ebay to buy a replacement...

I am not savvy enough (I'm a dipshit) to install it myself and I am getting a little bit of work done tomorrow at an auto shop and I'm going to bring the mirror with me and ask them to install it for me...

how much should I be expecting them to charge me for that labor since I have already bought the part?

Whatever they charge for labor is my guess.

1 hour service work.

45 min- 1 hour?

JASONSAUTO 03-10-2013 04:55 PM

Hour or less I would think.

what I'm trying to say is...I'm on tap for about $100 of work tomorrow and with that I don't expect to pay more than $20 for them to install the mirror...is that reasonable? If they want to charge me more I already have a friend who said he'd do it free of charge but I rather not use his time if I can just pay $20 or so when I'm already taking my car in tomorrow as is

$20? Best of luck with that.

really?

when they are already working on the car as it is?

my friend said he'd do it for free I suppose I'll just go that route...it can't be much work whatsoever...it needs to be plugged in and bolted down...that shouldn't take someone with the necessary tools/knows what they are doing more than 10 minutes

Any idea at all who did it?

I was wondering what a fair price to ask for at the shop tomorrow...that's why. Pretty ****ing simple, no?

I'm not going to ask them to do it for $20 if that is an insult. I have the part, I've already spent $105 on that...I would rather not waste my friend's time at his work to do me a favor so tomorrow when I'm getting some minor work done was going to have them do it as long as it didn't cost much more than $20.

if it costs $50+ for labor on something that shouldn't take more than 10 minutes then forget it

No. I live in an apartment on a college campus...I went to scrape the ice of my windshield one morning a few weeks ago and the ****ing thing was dangling straight off...someone punched it, kicked it, or threw a heavy ****ing trash bag out of their window that landed right on my side mirror.

Depends where you're taking it.

one who sucks the penis dealerships will try to charge $15-20 to replace a bulb. Several oil changes ago:

Them: Oops. You have a tail light out. Did you know?
Me: Nope. Go ahead and throw that on while you're changing the oil.
Them: Cool.
Me: Any additional charge for that, beyond cost of the light of course?
Them: $15.
Me: Laughter. Yeah, no.
