How do you replace the tail light bulb on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring?

"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 what 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.

Grasp the lamp connector at the back of the housing and turn in about 1/4 turn clockwise and remove the lamp. When installing the new lamp, don't touch the new lamp with your bare fingers. The oil from your fingers will cause the lamp to turn dark and shorten the life of the lamp. Install the new lamp and headlight assembly in the reverse order.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1996 Chrysler Sebring JX convertible?

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.

How much would it cost to replace a water pump on a 2002 Chrysler sebring?

Answer dated 8th March 2012. Chrysler Sebring 2002, 2.7V6 4 door LXi Sedan. I shopped around and surprisingly, the best price I got was from my local Chrysler dealer. The water pump runs off the timing chain and is in an insanely ridiculous place - inside the engine crank-case. The boffins at Chrysler must have been very, very stoned when they approved that particular piece of design genius. Labor charges make up most of the cost due to the pump's horrible location and the time it takes to get at it. Since you will have to spend the money getting to the pump, you would be mad not to change the timing chain while you're there. My car has done 127k on the original water pump, so should be good for at least another 100k now the job is done. My trusted private mechanic's boss quoted be an eye-popping £2,088. Chrysler quoted $1,310 including tax. Parts and labor warrantied for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first. By comparison, my wife's Mercury Sable needed a water new pump and that cost $350.00, all in. Ouch. Good luck with your repair!

Try as you might to find it, there isn't one. Chrysler put the pressure cap on top of the plastic overflow tank! You need to make sure that cap has a good rubber seal on it when you remove it. [ you DO allow the engine to cool down before removing that cap don't you? ] When removing the cap, you should hear a short "hiss" sound which is pressure escaping from the cooling system (if the system is warm and not cold). \nUnder these conditions, if there is no "hiss" you most likely have a bad cap so replace it! Only $4.80 at Auto Zone. Just do it. Good luck!

There are two bolts you must turn to remove the old tension pulley. The one on the pulley must be loosened in order to loosen the tension pulley. To the left of the pulley(looking from the passenger side of the vehicle) the tensioning bolt is situated at a right angle to the pulley bolt. It is pointing towards the rear of the vehicle. There is an aluminum slug inside the mount point for the pulley. You may have trouble threading the bolt back into the slug once removed. It is possible but you may have to hold the slug steady with the tensioning bolt. Be sure to keep the aluminum brace that goes on the outside of the pulley. It will be hard to find if you lose it. Once the bolt holding the tensioner is removed from the engine the parts simply slip apart. Be sure to reassemble them just like you dissasembled them. Tighten the bolt to the point that the pulley can still be adjusted with the tensioning bolt. Tighten the tensioning bolt until the belt is tight to specifications. then be sure to tighten down the pulley bolt.

How do you replace an interior door handle on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring?

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 can'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!
