2008 Toyota Avalon - 3.5 V6 - Alt Assy Labor?

Postby FieroJen » Wed May 04, 2016 7:42 am

Good morning,

When replacing the alternator on an '08 Toyota Avalon w/3.5 V6 yesterday, we noticed that the labor in Estimator was GROSSLY underestimated. We were given .9 to R&R the alt, but the technician had to (I believe) unbolt the AC compressor and loosen the front core support to push the rad back in order to access it.

For comparison, when looking up a Lexus of the same year with the same engine, the same job paid 4.3 hrs.

I wanted to bring it to your attention so that it doesn't happen to others.

Cheers,
Jennie

I have moved this to Using ProDemand as more appropriate (since it's the source) as Technical Issues is reserved for Manager SE platform issues.

An inquiry is underway - stay tuned
