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.
