You could do it; it's not that hard. You have to remove the intake duct and the radiator cover and use a tensionser tool. It took me about 20 minutes. Add another 5-10 minutes since I didn't change either tensioner, only the belts. Could have been quicker but I was talking with my neighbor while I was doing it.

But to answer your question, they should not charge you for more than one hour's labor. I would suggest asking a buddy who maybe more mechanically inclined to guide you through it.

I just replaced my belts once I got the parts took 10 minutes at most? Then replaced my tensioner pulley the next day in 5 minutes, with removing the first belt and replacing it.
Any competent mechanic should be able to do it in less than an hour.
