For sure, pay for the parts. Auto parts store price, around $20-.

Depending on relationship, ask if he wants payment for labor or invite him and wife/friend out for dinner.

Labor scale varies greatly from area to area - so unknown. Guessing, between $20- and $50- cash for labor. Just don't try and get off cheap. He may not help you with you next problem.
I have an excuse. CRS.
