How much does it cost to change a starter in a 2003 PT Cruiser?

Starter is $102 at Advance Auto Part. Changing it is easy, but

cumbersome to get to. Remove the battery, air intake cover, air

intake box, and battery tray. Jack the car up on the drivers side

so you can reach the underside bolt on the starter. Unbolt the

wires on the starter and then proceed to take out the bolt on the

underside of the starter. Then unbolt the top bolt. Starter will

come out the top with a little force. Installation is opposite of

removal. Don't forget to hook your ground wires back up!!

Do this yourself and save money. Shop would probably charge you

around $250-$300 to do this hour long job.
