I didn't buy a new manifold but I rang around to get a quote , as one work shop suggested that rather than cleaning to replace with a new one , and i was curious on what they sold for , apologies for the confusion

By the way, my dealer advised on email to me that a catch can and a pre/primary oil filter are OK for warranty. I did not ask about a secondary/post oil filter. Cheers

I've had my manifold cleaned at around 75000km before I fitted the EGR block. A few photos what it looked like before and after cleaning.

Fair dinkum, mechanics are becoming parts fitters.

Fancy fitting a new manifold because it is dirty.

So just unbolt the dirty one, throw it away & fit a new shiney one???

Sounds reasonable

I seen a mechanic recently decide a machine required new radiator, big radiator, as it was chokka with oil & blocked.
Dishwasher capsules & hot water ended up a fairly cheaper option, followed by degreaser it turned out.

Blame cheap parts availability and expensive labour.

$200 Chinese radiator and 1 hours labour and know the job will last at least a year or 2, v's 2 or 3 hrs labour and not knowing if cleaning will have the desired affect so might have to replace radiator anyway.

Our workshop recently cleaned a front end loader radiator as you described, but that was a $2000+ radiator v's 2 or 3 hrs of the apprentices time.

Blame poor training, plug in computer look for codes & replace parts.

Parts fitters called mechanics are becoming common i think.

& I agree labour is becoming more expensive & definately one reason & a big reason as well, so first option becomes replace & of course its easier, so it becomes the way it is done.

The art of nut it out & repair, make it work is unfortunately a dying art & as you rightly say for many reasons, it's just a fact of the modern world.

Fendt/ German built tractor parts as to what I was refering to are not overly cheap I can assure you, think BIG Mercedes! It was more like a 4 day job, the dreaded oil cooler failure, very similar actually to what happens to the odd Pajero, but a rather much larger scale .
