Answer . Steps to replace the battery Air Cleaner Removal 1. Loosen the air intake hose clamp (with a flathead screwdriver), which holds the intake tube to the air box lid. 2. Once the hose clamp is loosened, pop open the two spring-loaded clamps on the left and right side of the air bo…x. The clamps help secure the lid to the air box. On the back of the air box lid there are 4 plastic slots, which match up with 4 corresponding tabs on the air box. In order to unhinge the lid from the air box slide the lid away from you about an inch and gently lift the lid up. Ensure that the lid is free from the air box hinge; then carefully disconnect the air intake hose from the lid at the hose clamp and remove the lid from the engine compartment. 3. Lift the air filter out of the air box. 4. The lower air box is removed by just tugging on it, it will pop out. It's held in place by three rubber pins that wedge into the indentations in the plastic air box. Battery Removal 5. Remove the anchor bolt at the base of the battery using a 1/2" socket. 6.

Answer . The way I did it was by removing the 2 screws on either side of the light. Pushing up the light and turning it so as I could pull it out. Once it was out I replaced the bulb and put it back in the slot in reverse order.
Start by putting the car on the jack stands and removing the wheels. Spread some paper on the floor under each brake caliper, then hit the calipers and rotors with a big dose of brake cleaner. Be careful to work where there is plenty of ventilation and try not to breath in the brake cleaner fumes! R…emove the Pads The center section of the caliper holds the pads in place and is connected to the outer section of the caliper with just two bolts called guide pin bolts. Remove these bolts and lift the center of the caliper up and off the brake pads. (You may need to hit them with a little PB Blaster or WD-40 to help loosen them). Remove the Caliper Here's where you need to take note of how the old pads fit in place. The pad towards the inside of the car has a metal tab that sticks out about half an inch. The pad on the outside is smooth. After you remove the old pads, unbolt the caliper mounting bracket by removing the two 18mm bolts holding it in place. Hang the caliper from the strut springs with the bungee cord to keep the caliper from hanging by the brake line. Re-Seat the Piston As your old brake pads wore down, the brake caliper piston was pushed further out to make up the difference, so in order for the new pads to fit the piston has to be forced back into the caliper. Use the C-clamp and an old brake pad to push the piston back into place. A note about re-seating the piston. If you've been a good doobie and filled the brake fluid reservoir as your brakes wore down, you'll need to siphon some fluid back out or it will overflow as you push the piston back in place. The rest of us slackers can just skip this step. Apply Brake Lube Put brake lube on the insides of the caliper, where the back of the pads make contact with the inside of the caliper and the piston. Remove the Rotor With the caliper off the front axle the rotor can be removed. It should just pull right off. A stubborn rotor can be removed with a few raps with a rubber mallet. Re-Assemble Now you can place the new rotor on, mount the caliper and brake pads. When replacing the caliper, note that the end of the guide pin mount has two flat spots. This piece is easily turned, and one of the flat spots has to be aligned with the flat section of the inner caliper. If the caliper won't slide completely in place this is most likely the reason. Caliper and Rotor Installed With the caliper back on all that's left to do is re-mount the wheel take the car off the jacks. (MORE)

You can start by removing the top portion by unfastening the two metal clips on the sides. Then loosen the hose clamp at the back. The top will now lift completely off revealing the air filter. Remove the air filter. You will see a rubber spike inside the box at the back. What you can't see is that …this rubber piece fits snugly over a metal bracket underneath. This is the only connection point, so no tools are required. Simply grab both sides of the box and pull upward. This could all be done without separating the top and bottom of the air box as well, but space is tight as it is. (MORE)

The PT stands for and designates the car's platform as well asproduction code. The name also recalls the 1930s line of PlymouthTrucks known by the "PT" moniker. Personal Transportation Whether the initials assumed this meaning by design or chance isanother matter.the "PT" is also the company's in…ternal designationfor the platform.

Not really feasible. The engine and transmission are removed as anunit out the bottom. You would need a way to lift the car highenough to get the engine out.
The rear door panel on a PT Cruiser can easily be removed byunscrewing the screws at the top and bottom. The exact location ofthe screws can be found in the user manual.
It takes a special puller for it. I just removed one and I borrowed it from a parts store and had put a deposit down on it. They have you put a deposit so you will bring the pulley back. But that is the Only way to take them Off. Do Not use Heat on it, no matter what anyone tells you either. You wil…l ruin the timing cover behind the pulley if you get it too hot and you will have to replace it. It will cost you about $40 for that lower timing cover. Just so you know, I been there. (MORE)
First, you want to locate the red colored lock on the housing connector, just give it a small push and it should you feel it slide over to one side. It is now unlocked. Next you want to see where the neon green connector is slipped over 2 small prongs on the oil pressure unit. Pry those up a bit and… as you are holdin them pull and wiggle the neon green connection off of the pressure unit and over the small prongs. Be carefull as sometimes the housing is weak from heat and might crack. (MORE)
It depends on how you treat it. I got my 2002 new and it's still running well 9 1/2 years later.
Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain the oil and replace the filter. Add 4 quarts of the correct weight oil and then start the engine. Let it run for 30 seconds and shut down. Wait 30 minutes and check the level. Add as necessary to top it off. You now know the capacity.
You use an impact wrench or breaker bar and spanner to remove thebolt.. a special insert is placed were the bolt was. Then a threejaw puller is used to pull the pulley off.
Contact your closest Chrysler dealer (you will need the radio serial number and the PT Cruisers VIN) They will be able to provide the code for a small fee.
Yes the engine from a 2005 will fit any 2003 to 2007 the 2000 to 2002 are not the same motors
It requires a three jaw puller and a special tool that is insertedin place of the bolt.
It is below the intake manifold, behind the engine mount on theradiator side of the engine.
go to the bottom of the antenna and unscew the little part to the left. its pretty easy
No, it is interference. Valves can bend if the timing belt breaks. No, it is interference. Valves can bend if the timing belt breaks.

The PT Cruiser was built in Toluca, Mexico. They have not been produced since July of 2010. That factory is currently producing the Fiat 500, now that Fiat is in the process of acquiring Chrysler.
You must remove the intake manifold, very simple job. I believe there are 7 bolts in front of intake that face up, also there are 2 13mm bolts under the throtle body, 1 in the back and 1 just under right side of it. Note make sure you disconnect battery because you might have to disconnect 1 or …2 sensors. If you have a short bungy cord connect 1 end to the hood and the other through the bolt hole on the intake, this will hold the intake up for you. (MORE)
I have read a lot about the replacement of PT Cruiser motor mountsand it seems that the mounts themselves go for about $30 - $40. Isaw that replacing all four (4) of them cost someone $420. It alsoseems that Chrysler has built in "planned obsolescence" into someof the parts to their cars meaning the…y are very aware that someparts wear out much sooner than they "should" but theyintentionally let the situation remain as is and profit from thesales and servicing for the replacement of parts that wear outearly. I was a Mopar guy since 1975, but not now. I have had 60 orso vehicles in my life (yes, I love cars) and close to half havebeen Chrysler vehicles. However with the higher cost to maintainthan my Toyota Corollas, I guess I am turning into a Toyota guynow. (MORE)
The car should have an idler pulley towards the top if the engine. It does not run an accessory, but provides tension to the belt. The pulley pivots away to relieve tension using a ratchet or breaker bar. The belt should then slip right off. Look for a decal under hood that shows routing of the belt… for installation. I hope this helps! (MORE)
