Some radiators/condensers have built-in cooling systems for transmissions, power steering systems.

Labor to replace these cooling units (radiators/condensers) does not include any additional labor that may be needed to fill additional fluids (transmission/power steering/Oils) when being R/I or R/R.

Fluid cost is NOT INCLUDED in CCC labor values.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
