The dealership should cover the cost being they were the last ones to have that wheel off and when they were taking it off, they damaged the stud(hence see my reasoning in my first reply).
3 hours for plugs on a turbo engine? Seriously? You don't need to jack the engine on a turbo motor either. So what's the extra 1.5 hours for? Unbolting the washer bottle?
A good tech can pull the damn engine in under that.
