Time used for deleting faulty codes?


I picked up my car at the local MB workshop this afternoon after a regular check (not service).I also asked them to delete a SRS error code.

They charged me 100$ for deleting the error code. He told me that such a procedure takes 30 minutes.

Is this correct?

Maybe he takes 30 minutes, or it is the minimum charge.
When you consider the time you spend filling up the documents, giving the keys to the adviser, time the adviser talks to the shift manager, time the manager takes to decide which technician gets the job, time it takes to explain to the technician what needs to be done, moving the car to the bay, spending about 3 minutes actually doing the request job, repark the car to the carwash, wash the car, repark, notify the shift manager the car is ready, time the manager needs to notify the office the car is ready...
