HOW MANY HOURS TO REPLACE TIMING BELT, 12 BENT VALVES, WATER PUMP. 1.8 VW TURBO
2002 Volkswagen Beetle
Car towed and was told the above was needed. Charged for 27 hours of labor. I thought this was excessive.

Thanking you in advance. Girls don't know much about this stuff ; >)

For me way too excessive-get another estimate they are trying to rack you in, go somewhere else

I think they may have added individual labor estimates together.
1)Head gasket: 5.9hrs
2)Water pump: 3hrs
3)Timing belt: 2.7hrs
4)Head gasket & cylinder head overhaul: 9.9hrs
When doing 1 should have included 2 & 3.
When doing 3 should have included 2.
When doing 4 should have included 1, 2 & 3.
"Slight" labor modifications are done when adding additional
work "while you are in-there" so to speak.
Seems to me that they were double dipping the labor guide.
*** Unless they ran into issues that explain the additional labor ***
