My neighbor fixed my car

My neighbor is a certified auto mechanic. My Chevy S-10’s air conditioner went out 7 months ago, and I paid him $800 to fix it, including parts. All was OK for 6 months, and now the new part (compressor) has failed.
He said he would fix it, so I got the replacement parts. After he replaced the parts again, he now wants me to pay him $150 for labor. He did not mention that before he started job.
Do you think this is fair? What would you do?
