My car is currently in the process of getting a driveshaft, cv joint, differential bushings, and new differential seals replaced. I have an aftermarket warranty (through aaautowarranty - the provider is warranty america), which will cover everything except for the bushings (wear and tear). However, there is a discrepancy with the labor covered. Concerning labor reimbursement, the contract states: "Labor will be authorized based on a nationally recognized labor manual." After a conversation with one of their adjusters today, they informed me their labor rate sources are AllData and Motors Red (anyone have access to these?), which I was told are specific to make and model (even M5s). According to the warranty company my dealer (my service advisor has been excellent as well as the tech working on the car - point being, I trust them - maybe thats not good?) has stated that the labor required for the driveshaft is 4.5 hours (warranty will pay for 4.2) and 6 hours for the differential seals (warranty will pay for 3.5). What they didn't mention is the labor for the CV joint, which I assume is being lumped in with the differential seals - will check tomorrow. I know I will have to pay some labor for the bushings, but my tech said those will take no time at all since everything will already be dropped for the differential seals. Anyway, just wanted to check with you experts to see if this sounded right. I feel like I'm nickel and diming here, but I just like knowing this are being handled correctly. Thanks!
