Hi there. Have a 2012 Subaru Forester with 79,800 miles. Just failed inspection at a local Subaru dealership and was told I needed a CAM box reseal. The CAM boxes are leaking oil onto the exhaust. I was quoted $2,762 for the repairs. This seems awfully high to me. From what I've read, the parts themselves are relatively cheap, but the labor/repair time is extensive. Read it can take a mechanic 6 hrs to do, as multiple parts need to be removed to do the work. Anyone have experience with this? Is this a fair, typical price? I plan to compare quotes, but I also want a mechanic who is experienced with Subarus to be doing the work. Thanks in advance!
