gear cables snapped-cost?

Post  Stu on 6/8/2013, 10:52 am

My trophy was stuck in first gear parked up against the house last monday morning ....hell of a job pushing it back into the road once i got someone to sit in with foot on clutch Mad 
managed to drive it to local garage in 1st(6 miles took forever:!: Exclamation )

Left it with them to have a look,expected cable/linkage problem and thought mmmmn  about £50 parts and a good few hrs labour.

Had a call on friday to say its going to cost £250 parts and £550 total .

Does this seem fair?
Anyone else had this problem on an f/tf?
Totally skint,but need car to get to work Crying or Very sad

I seem to recall hat's high, i seem to remember in the region of 300 quid, i bet there's an hour or twos labour for removing the interior, you could do that yourself and save a few quid
