Coolant Reservior

Well, I was struck by the nasty "Coolant Reservior" leaky bug.

Good news is that Suncoast Porsche in Oregon sells it for $164.73, a far cry from the $255 + from other stealerships.

Labor on the other hand is still expensive. How many hours or how much should it cost to replace?

It takes awhile to do it so I'd guess a minimum of 2.5-3 hours. It took me 4 hours to do it in the garage.

I'm guessing you bumped this message to get a different answer than John provided above?

My mechanic quoted 2.5 hours to replace it.
