Q: altenator problem on 2004 Mercedes-Benz C230

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My dealership says that to change the altenator and a belt tensioner will cost $1600 because of having to remove the turbo to get to it. I have a c230 kompressor. Does that sound reasonable to you??? I'm a lady with no car repair knowledge.
