DUOVALVE: How long to replace? Dealer says 1.5 hrs

It is in for some other stuff so I said go ahead and do it. Gave me a fair price on the part. BUT -- from what I remember in looking at it -- I can't imagine what could possibly take more than 30 minutes, tops.

What is the "book" or alldata time?

Explain the time rate. How does .8 hour equal 30 minutes?

Should take no more than 30 minutes on a w124.

you might need a wet rag to clean residue on the inside of the heater hoses...... if your hoses are real clean...it's a good sign of engine coolant that has been replaced on a regular basis.

.5 is 1/2 hour so .8 is a litle more than 1/2 hour, obviusly 1.0 is 1 full hour.

ask them where they got the time from? also please remember that the time guide is exactly that, a guide, so times may differ from shop to shop.
