Question: Clutch hose needs to be replace

Clutch went out on me yesterday. Bought the Car CPO in Jan. 2010 and the extended warranty ends today. Told by the dealer that it was leaking clutch fluid and that I will need to have the clutch hose replaced. Also been informed that the repair is not covered by the CPO extended warranty. How long should this repair take? Being told 3.5 hours at a whopping cost of $120/hour!

According to my manual, the book time to replace the hose is 0.3 hours. Add an additional 0.4 to bleed the system.

The hose is listed at $107.63
