I fixed it! For $757.00 less than the dealer's e$timate!

Since Kinja is dredging up old notifications today, I happened into my drafts and found this - wrote it back in August but never posted it...

Cha-CHING! Some of you may recall my last post, where I rejected the dealership's quote of $380 to replace a hinge on the rear hatch of our Passat Wagon. Not only that, but they "Strongly recommended" that we replace the other side as well. *cough cough* just because? We are suckers?

Well I dug into it this weekend and took care of the problem, not for a whopping $760, but a mere $3 and 1 hour of my time.
