‘98 Ford Contour SE, Sunroof Motor
Q: The local Ford garage wants to charge me $300 in parts and $300 in labor to replace the sunroof motor in my ‘98 Ford Contour SE. Am I being ripped off? Can't I just pop the cover off and replace the motor myself?
- Andrew S.
A: The price of the sunroof motor is about right, they're pricey units. As for the labor I would have to ask if they're doing something more than replacing the motor, as in addressing some other problem was well? The motor itself is not that time consuming to change. To remove, install and synchronize should take an hour or less if things go well.
