How much labor is typically required for radiator installation at the dealer? I know replacement BMW radiator is about $450 plus coolant. Thanks

Hello

With parts I am showing you may spend up to about $600 which includes replacement of the coolant.

Hello

Also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.

The time for warranty repair/replacement of the radiator is 1.3 hours or 13 flat rate units. This should not be confused with what they may/will charge for customer pay. I usually see 125% of the flat rate, is there anything else mate?

That is just one of the reasons I do not go to or send people to the dealer. It is also high on the list of why I dont work in the dealerships anymore, these guys are crooks.
