Re: [Zurich] Garage Cleaning for MFK... Was I just unlucky?

What's a dampener in a car? Do you mean damper?

It's not really possible to judge this price as we don't know what shape your car was really in - as you didn't have a garage yet, maybe your car has not seen one in a longer time? And also you don't mention how much of it is parts replaced.

You know what he meant, or maybe you don't because it seems you didn't understand the rest of his post either.

Seems super excessive to me!

There was a "cleaning", incidental bulb replacement, and then the spring replacement.
It's possible the spring broke coincidentally at the garage. If they had it on a ramp it's possible it pulled on an already damaged damper top mount or the uneven suspension pulled on it. If you only had it in for a clean you can't really blame them for not seeing a broken spring.

First rule in CH: Ask how much it costs
Second rule: Ask how much it costs for them to tell you how much it costs.
