Didnt mean to imply that a shop does not deserve what it charges. But this job was literally 10 minutes, and thats including the sunroof headliner removal, but not the adjustment. If the case is that the Mercedes dealer has more knowledge and expertise then they should charge $150 an hour and just charge one hour of labor. If the issue is that more was wrong than just the cable, then of course more should be charged. Best case scenario is 2 hours X $70, plus the cable at $55 is $195 + tax to replace the cable. And that's best scenario.

Just my 2 cents, and why I try to go with independent shops until I make my first million.
