Rear main seal replacement

Quick question for some of you rover mechanics out there. How much is a fair price to pay to replace the rear main seal?

I was quoted 1700 by the dealer and 800 by an independent You have to drop the trannsmission and then replace the seal. I would replace all the seals back there if your going to do it.

It is most likely the cross seals and not the rear main.

Robinson service I think said ~2.5 hours of labor and ~$25 for parts plus oil.
