Arctic Weather & Clogged Oil Separator - Repair cost?

2005 X5 3.0i 89Kmiles
Chicago area where's it's been mighty cold

Wifey came home in panic telling me to come out to the garage. Heavy smoke coming out of the engine and I thought it was on fire. I opened the hood to see oil has leaked all over the engine and it's a huge mess. Took it to my trusty mechanic who thoroughly checked it out. He tells me the oil separator is clogged. He's an honest guy who usually charges very little compared to other shops.

What is the average cost for a repair/replacement like this?
