All I can say is Thank God I don't have to deal with your dealerships. Fortunately, I had a similar problem with mine and took it to my dealership. If I remember right it was under $200, quick easy - Without pulling the invoice, I want to say a bit under an hour labor and the part. I suppose it is like anything else, there are good ones and bad ones out there.
It does make me wonder if those were exclusive MB dealerships, or Chevy, Buick, Toyota Hyundia and Kia....along with MB all under the same roof with the same shop? I've always felt the manufacturer mixes for a dealership probably had some quality trade offs, but nothing to really base that on.
