Mechanic said although the part is cheap that they would have to take the whole dash apart and it would take 5 hours so it would cost $680.00. - Does this seem right?

    Yes, according to my labor rate information 5 hours is the required time to replace the expansion valve in the AC system of your 2004 Pontiac Vibe.

    the valve is about 65-80
