how hard are these to change

my girlfriend is currently at a honda dealer after loosing all her water from the car.

they are saying she needs a new radiator at 250 with 200 labour!!!!!!!!

i can get a radiator for 80 from a local motor factors but honda are saying its a special enclosed system with an inbuilt pump that why it expensive and take so long to do

any opinions

all coolant systems have an inbuilt pump (mechanical) and a load of cars also have electric w/pumps as well
i dont know about your cars specifics but 200pounds labours sounds a lot to me for some monkey in a honda overall to change your rad as a hell of a lot of stealers sorry dealers only have substandard work force and trade on the dealer ship flag as if there the gods and no other peasant should touch the car .
rant over !!

Changing a rad is a piece of piss, buy the one for 80 quid and do it yourself.
