2004 Scion xA Question: Blower Motor Replacement - Pricing

I just got an estimate to replace the Blower Motor on my 04 Scion xA and was quoted $1100, but the estimator tool on RepairPal is suggesting a range of 178-205. It suggests a labor price of 49-62. Is that meant to be a per hour rate? I was told it would take 6+ hours to replace, and at that rate, it would still be about half of what I was quoted. Is $1100 an outrageous amount to replace a blower motor? Thank you. -
Answer 1
Let me look into this estimate for you, for some reason there is a large disparity with the RepairPal estimate and I want to figure out why. I'll respond shortly. -

We've looked into this and we don't know how this shop is coming up with 6 hours to perform this job. Are you sure you aren't being quoted for the heater core? -

Thank you for your response and follow up bretb. I'm sure it's just the blower motor. They replaced a part (resistor? transistor?) but the blower was broken again in 3 days. The air is cooled, it just doesn't blow. Thank you again, I will pursue another estimate. -
