Hard to say what the actual time would be as there are things that factor in, bolts seased and rusty ect. However there are flat rate times that may be charged and usually are! I don't have those rates here but you can check around and find them! It has a belt that turns the alternator and one that turns the air cond. + the power steering. (fan belts) they are commonly called but really have nothin to do with the fan on this car.
