How do you replace the alternator on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring?
Did a 2001 Chrysler Seabring 2.7L Remove right hand lower splash shield under the vehicle. Loosen the belt tensioner which will be two 13mm bolts. Discharge the A/C system. disconnect wiring from alternator and remove the three bolts from the alternor. Once the alternator is disconnected from the engine remove the low side A/C line from the A/C compressor and the alternator will come out through the top. It will be tight but it will come out.

Thanks for the feedback!
Hey Melissa==First remove the neg battery cable then the serpentine belt then the wiring for the altermator then the 2 bolts that hold it on. Make sure you have a schematic fo…r the belt before you take it off. It should be on the fan shroud. If it isn't there, draw a schematic for yourself. Don't rely on memory. GoodluckJOE
"Pull the trunk liner? If so, what a poor design! ". I just did it yesterday. The tools needed are a flathead screwdriver and pliers.. Surprise, pulling the trunk liner IS w…hat you need to do. When you remove the push pin properly you can reuse it to put the trunk liner back.. You should see three plastic wing nuts and the harness connection to the tail light assembly. You need to remove these to take out the assembly. When you do be sure not to remove the other wiring.. The socket for the bulb needs to be turned about 60 degrees and it should come right out. Take out the old bulb and put the new one in. The store sold me a packet of dielectric to put on the terminals to help protect them. (It was $1.00 so why not?). Replace the bulb socket in reverse to the way you took it off. Replace the assembly as it was originally in. Put on the wing nuts and reconnect the harness. Replace the liner and you're done.
If it on a 2.7 litre engine, it is not located in the normal or conventional manner as thermostats have been located in past vehicles. It is in the right front of the engine b…lock, located in the thermostat housing under the alternator. Follow the lower radiator hose up to the engine. Where the hose terminates is the thermostat housing.
Answer . go under hood reach down where headlight is turn the light counterclock wise and pull bulb out then twist bulb and it will come out.
I just replaced the alternator on a 97 Sebring JXi convertible, 2.5L engine. I had to remove the four AC compressor mounting bolts so that the AC could be moved away from the …engine enough to get a socket on the alternator pivot bolt. You do not need to break the compressor lines. I also removed the top mounting ear bolt and the bracket to make room to remove the alternator from the engine compartment.. Of course the first thing you do is disconnect the negative battery terminal either at the battery or at the jumper cable location in the engine compartment. You also have to loosen the idler pulley and remove the belt. I removed the front right wheel and plastic cover to get to the pulley and belt. This also permits better access to the AC compressor bolts.. I found it easier to get the alternator free before I disconnected the electrical wires.
When replacing the alternator on a 2000 Chrysler Sebringconvertible begin by removing the belt. Next, remove the wiring.Lastly, remove the retaining bolts. Reverse the process… to installthe new alternator.
you must drop the fuel tank, its held on by 2 straps(bolts)

take your car to a shop if you must ask such a question. You obviously do not have the skill totackle such a complex task as remove the engine and then replace the Torque conv…erter.
Remove left front wheel. At the front of the wheel well there is an access door for the battery. Remove it by either turning the fasteners 1/4 turn or, if there are push faste…ners, pop up the centers of the fasteners and then you can pull out the whole fastener. Disconnect the cables, then disconnect the battery hold-down and remove the battery. You may have to remove the battery heater blanket if there is one. The owners manual claims that it is possible to remove the battery without removing the wheel, just turn the front wheels all the way to the right. Because of the cumbersome weight of the battery, you are probably better off givingyourself the extra working space by removing the wheel. Suppport the car properly with a jack stand. Don't rely on the car jack to hold up the car while you are wrestling around with the battery.
the water pump is located behind the front timing chain cover,it is driven by timing chain. recommend dealer for repair this isnot for a novice mechanic. . money As a Chrysl…er tech, that job books at 9 hours of labor for anexperienced mechanic.

Depends on where you get it done but was $365 for me. Yuck!
A 2002 Chrysler Sebring has an overhead cam engine. That means itdoes not have push rods.
Can you replace a 2.7L engine in a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible with a 3.0L from a same year Chrysler Sebring coupe?
It is not a direct swap. They use different transmissions,computers, wiring, etc.
The alternator is driven by the serpentine belt. Follow the belt around the engine and you will find the alternator.
I did mine in under 2 hours. Its a tight fit but I highly suggest you get the haynes manual for tips on it.
Firstly, don't believe the Chrysler dealer when he tells you thatthe interior door handle can't be supplied separately because it'san integral part of the door panel and it ca…n't be removed. Theywanted to charge me approximately $700.00 for a new door panel.Nice try, chaps. Remove the door panel. This is really easy. There are 3 screws onthe bottom edge of the panel, one sunk into the hand-grip recessthat you use to pull the door shut and one behind the door handlethat you use to open the door. Remove these screws. Pull off the panel. It's held in place by a series of push-fitpins. Start at the bottom of the panel, there are some indents thatmake it easy to get your fingers behind. Once you've done that,work your way around, popping the panel off. If you can't getsufficient grip, use a nylon prying tool, not a screwdriver! Once the panel is free, disconnect the 2 plugs that attach to theelectric window control switch-pack and the central locking switchon the inside of the door panel. Now disconnect the door handle mechanism from the push/pull rodthat operates the door latch. You might need to pry it off, but ifthe handle is broken, it'll probably be detached and loose anyway. Now the panel is free, flip it over. (I was working outside, I usedan old blanket to rest the panel on to avoid scratching it.) Thedoor handle assembly is held in place by 2 small hex-screws. Removethem and push the door handle assembly out with your thumbs. Easy! Now install your replacement handle and reverse the above process.If you don't have a replacement handle available, you can get yourdoor working again by tying some string to the end of the push/pullrod and threading it trough the door handle assembly. Replace thepanel and you can open the door by pulling the string. I tied aloop in the end of my string to make it easier to use. Replacement door handles are hard to find. I could only find one onthe internet and that was $133.00. I couldn't bring myself to shellout that much for a plastic handle when I could make it work withstring. I found a salvage yard with a Sebring in stock. The handle cost$10.00. Much more acceptable. Hope this helps and good luck with your repair!
