Stiffed on door-lock repair?
The driver-side door lock failed on my 200Q last month: tried
to do it myself (with assistance from the list, particularly
Al Powell) but finally gave up because I just didn't have the
time. Bit the bullet and took it in to the local dealership:
$148 (2 hrs) labor, and $90 or so for the "lock cylinder
turnbuckle". Ouch! I knew there was a good reason I did
everything myself .... how badly did I get stiffed?
