Exclamation EGR VALVE $305 to replace

I need a quick answer please. My Jeep dealership is telling me I need a new EGR valve and say the part is $105 plus 2 hours labor @ $105 per hour. Does this seem correct?

Install is not hard to do: save yourself the labor costs.

Re: EGR VALVE $305 to replace

Never go to the stealership unless is absolutely necessary or for warranty issues...

Got my EGR valve for ~40$ and installed it within one hour...
