  1. Dude says:

    Probably over $50. You can do it yourself for much cheaper obviously. Look in the owners manual and it will show you how to take the housing off for the light. Take the light to an auto store and replace. It’s pretty simple and saves you a lot of money.

  2. Abraves4410 says:

    Headlights = roughly 10 to 15 dollars.
    labor = 1/2 hour
    labor rates are usually anywhere from 70-120 dollars per hour, with 120 being at the dealers.

    1/2 hour labor = roughly 35-60 dollars

    so in total, your looking around 50-75….when you couldve just untwisted the lights and replaced em yourself for 15 bucks and 10 minutes of work

  3. Aaron says:

    At my shop, the bulbs each cost around $18 and we charge a 1/10 an hour of labor (about $11) per side. So with tax and such it will be close to $70. But to be fair, its so easy that you could do it yourself and save yourself quite a bit. Even though we charge labor for it I usually can do both in less than 5 minutes.
