Well, yeah .. I know ...

Don't all the mechanics/dealers have a fixed labor time for a specific job... ? Guess this was like that. The guy told me, before I went, that it will be 1.5 hour labor and I had agreed. My other independent mechanic and a couple other places I called quoted me over 2 hours of labor for this job @ $100/hr.

In fact, I've had cases where some 4 hour work was needed in my car, but the car was ready 2 hours after its dropped off, and I was charged for 4 hours ... maybe 2 persons worked on it ...
