Hi..

Hopefully i can help..

If your refering to a rear box section on the exhaust these should be relevitly cheap and usually come in at around £30 - the lambda sensor i asume your refering to on the exhaust system..they need to be sure that the cause for the emissions issue..can come in at around £95+ .universal ones can be cheaper in the £60-£70 range but often its best to fit an oem type sensor..fitting isnt too bad to do both you could be looking at about hour and half inc the restest for emissions etc..so as approx you maybe looking at that £150 range..we can only give estimates as most garages hourly rates do differ alot around the uk aswell as prices form where they source these parts from.so it can be difficult to give exact prices on work needing carried out..I do hope this helps..if you require to ask anything further or include anything further then please do so before you rate
