In a word .... don't.

1. Left driver side:
a. power window REGULATOR is about to wear out .......................$475.00 Wow!
b. front wheel rim BENT .................................................. ........$465.00 Double Wow!

2. drive belt cracked, shpuld be no more than .............................$100.00

3. oil filter housing GASKET, should be approx..............................$400.00

4. real differential fluid change?, maybe ......................................$150.00

5. suggested BRAKE FLUID FLUSH - this one is about right...............$140.00

Aim for something closer to $1K at an independent shop.

Notes:
1 (a) How do they know? Slow closing? Noise? Could be window seals just need cleaning and lubing.
(b) Could be repaired by specialist for much less. This sounds like a replacement wheel.
Someone on this forum recently was selling 4 of them for about that price.
2. If done in conjunction with oil filter housing gasket the labor cost should be zero, and the part is about $25.
3. Unless they were thinking the housing itself needs replacing. Gasket leak is common around 100K miles, or before, so is worth doing before it really gives way.
4. Dealers don't usually promote diff. fluid changes. Maybe they see a leak and want to reseal it?
