Default Crankshaft Sensor Problem

I took my 04 Crossfire in for a stalling problem. The dealer reported that it was the crankshaft sensor feeding bad info to the computer and the sensor needed to be replaced. It was a $290 part with 2.5 hours labor. Roughly $600 total. Another dealer quoted me $217 for the part and .5 hours for the labor $300 total. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on a accurate price. I googled the part and it came up as $75. I think I am getting hosed either way, looking for any info.

the first quote is correct list is 210 for part and 1.5 hours labor the 74 bucks is for an aftermarket one I bet and I bet it wont work worth a crap. Second the .5 labor would be for a cam sensor not crank sensor.
U have basicly a mercedes benz car U get to pay more for inported parts.

Just discovered same problem with our 04. If I buy the sensor, where is it located and how difficult would it be to replace by myself? From the sound of other model locations, I would think it to be fairly simple. Anybody know? Thanks.

I was just told my 04 needs a crank sensor, my Crossfire would stall and take a while to re-start. The quote was $600 from the Chrysler dealership. I'm sure I could get it done for less but I don't have the time to look into it. The sensors on-line for $75 are aftermarket and I would never put one in my car, I hate aftermarket crap.

The part can be found for less than $50 and it IS a mercedes part.
Just need a socket and a wrench.
