Did he remove the door panel and all that? But half hour quite fast job.

My friend fitted Double Din player, take old one out and put in new one, accessory shop charge RM40, but for me he charge RM70, but I paid because China car, he had difficult adjusting the depth, so he took much longer time to do.....

better ask the technician how much he gonna charging, or at least an estimate, before start working on the car.
Fair and square, for both parties.

i dun think now can easily find rm20-30 labor charge edi, unless mechanic bawah pokok

if rm30 labor, after deduct the shop rental, worker labor etc etc fee....negative profit already
Still have. My mechanic that day check my wiring for air con, charge RM20 only. Initially I thought big problem because suddenly no more cold air and maybe compressor kaput. He check and say compressor not running. Check about 20 minutes found wire to air con in engine compartment broken. Just join back only.....:rolleyes:

Hello, you are not answering my question. I don't care people have to eat or not. We as a customers also have to eat. So, I am ASKING, not ARGUING.

Come on la Kenny,

Its not only one customer paying RM30 a day...

I agree with you bro, I felt that it is quite expensive for me as I see I don't feel that it is very complicated.

better ask the technician how much he gonna charging, or at least an estimate, before start working on the car.

Hard one, sometimes the technician don't know how deep is the problem and want to go how far is it for the wiring.. but good idea also bro. thanks

In my opinion, it's reasonable.wiring troubleshooting become expensive not because the look of how it perform. it look easy but it require essential knowledge to troubleshoot it and some are very hard to solve eventhough it look simple. some knowledge in wiring not come cheap as some earn it in hard way. just my 2 cents...

I feel the same way too, RM60 is reasonable. As long as the problem is solved, that would be the main objective.

Hi Kelvin,

Just found out that Kenny is from Kota Kinabalu, where wireman are scarce and distance away...

They labour charge there may varies from West Malaysia...

So geographically, charges differs and we therefore need not debate on it.

Sorry to everyone, especially Kenny for the unforeseen circumstances...:wavey:

Bro. Lesley,
Forums are like that. Someone ask, he/she will get all sorts of views and answers. Just have to decide on his/her own after reading the answers given. Think they are not relevant, forget about them.
Better to make friends then argue and become enemies.....:adore:
