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 f…or 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 line…r 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.
For the 2.7l it depends on how good of a mechanic you are. The water pump is driven by the timing chain which is located inside the engine. You will need to raise the ca…r, remove the right front wheel, then attack the project from that angle. Best to get a manual for the correct procedures. It is not a light task.
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 fro…m 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.
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 wa…ter 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!
When replacing the alternator on a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible begin by removing the belt. Next, remove the wiring. Lastly, remove the retaining bolts. Reverse the p…rocess to install the 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 Torqu…e converter.
the water pump is located behind the front timing chain cover, it is driven by timing chain. recommend dealer for repair this is not for a novice mechanic. money … As a Chrysler tech, that job books at 9 hours of labor for an experienced mechanic. It also requires a couple of special tools. The entire passenger side of the engine needs removed to access.
I'm assuming you have a convertible since from what I've read, the sedan bulb replacement is very straightforward. To replace the bulb in a convertible you need to remove the …headlight assembly by removing 2 bolts, one near each end of the assembly. These are (I believe) 8mm bolts so don't go removing the larger ones. Once the bolts are out you can remove the assembly. Remove retaining ring, pull bulb assembly out and unplug the bulb. Reverse directions for re-installation.
Depends on where you get it done but was $365 for me. Yuck!
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 that the interior door handle can't be supplied separately because it's an integral part of the door panel and… it can't be removed. They wanted 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 on the bottom edge of the panel, one sunk into the hand-grip recess that you use to pull the door shut and one behind the door handle that you use to open the door. Remove these screws. Pull off the panel. It's held in place by a series of push-fit pins. Start at the bottom of the panel, there are some indents that make it easy to get your fingers behind. Once you've done that, work your way around, popping the panel off. If you can't get sufficient grip, use a nylon prying tool, not a screwdriver! Once the panel is free, disconnect the 2 plugs that attach to the electric window control switch-pack and the central locking switch on the inside of the door panel. Now disconnect the door handle mechanism from the push/pull rod that operates the door latch. You might need to pry it off, but if the handle is broken, it'll probably be detached and loose anyway. Now the panel is free, flip it over. (I was working outside, I used an old blanket to rest the panel on to avoid scratching it.) The door handle assembly is held in place by 2 small hex-screws. Remove them 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 your door working again by tying some string to the end of the push/pull rod and threading it trough the door handle assembly. Replace the panel and you can open the door by pulling the string. I tied a loop in the end of my string to make it easier to use. Replacement door handles are hard to find. I could only find one on the internet and that was $133.00. I couldn't bring myself to shell out that much for a plastic handle when I could make it work with string. 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!
