Exclamation Sacramento Area Auto Mechanic or friend needed.

Hey All, long story so bear with me.

Well I just got screwed by a dealer.. Reliable Buick GMC and Cadillac in the Roseville Automall . I needed a power window regulator and motor for driver side front and rear windows on a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. They charged my $910 for $70 worth of parts and an hour of work.

After taking it home and having the drivers window fall down into the door the next night it seems they only put in the motor for the drivers window (even though the parts list specifically told them to replace the whole unit) and needed to charge me another $200 for the regulator. The right front now doesn't work either. They want to charge me $600 for the front passenger that worked fine when I took it in I told em to pound sand and to give me my $600 back for that window. They did the diagnostic for free on both fronts when I went back in. So I argued with them for a bit and they said they would not be able to refund the $195 original diagnostic if I chose to have them block the window and take their parts out. So I told them I'd pay parts cost $100 instead of the $200 and no labor.

I still need to have the right front regulator and motor repaired. I will supply the parts or the internet address for the parts if needed. I will pay labor for the job any mechanics in the Sacramento area or someone willing to help me do it with their tools for some beer and lunch?
