Just like a dealer will charge 100$ for a 10$ electrical switch, the
reason is they Can charge you whatever they want.

Yes, but this wasn't a dealer -- Independent mechanic that ordered the
part from the auto parts store.

There is an aftermarket one on rockauto.com that's about $140 +
shipping. But a mechanic will typically sell you at the "suggested
retail price" and maybe plus a mark-up. That's where a lot of the
profit is besides labor charges.
