How To: Change a PT Cruiser car battery
This is a how-to video on changing the battery in your 2001 Chrysler PT
Cruiser. I'm sure the process is similar in other year models; but this is
the general idea of how to do it.
You'll need a flathead screwdriver and 1/2 inch socket wrench.

2001 PT Cruiser Limited Edition

Dropzone 2" Lowering Springs
18" ADR Rims
Front Billet Grill
Strut tower brace
Air aid Intake
Custom flame vinyl graphics on headlights
Stainless front bumper inserts
Chrome side covers
APC rear tailights & reverse lights
JBL 8" subwoofer mounted in side cargo hole
Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to install part number 60818 from Hidden Hitch on our
2006 Chrysler PT cruiser. This install also applies to part number 24759
from Draw Tite. Alright, the hitch will attach where this tow hook is. This
tow hook will be removed and kept off. The hitch will be bolt into place
right here and also there will be a part in the frame up a little further
around this area that we will have to drill out for access of a carriage
bolt. It is basically the same thing on both sides. On the driver side we
are going to have to lower the muffler to get to the access there. Also we
took down the spare tire for now. Theoretically you should not have to take
it down but it makes it just a little bit easier to put the hitch back up
against the bumper and then put the spare tire up when you are done. First
of all, remove the Exhaust hangers.
On this model they are actually bolted on so you do not have to slide off
the rubber hangers, we will just unbolt them from the frame. There is one
back here in front of the axle so it might be a good idea to loosen them
and give you just a little bit of extra wiggle room. Next we have to take
off the tow hook. There are 2 bolts up back behind here that you will have
to get to by hand. Next what we are going to do is remove the tail lights.
I know that is not normal, but to do this you will have to get to the
access door that we are going to drill through to the bottom of the frame.
We will get access to that behind the tail light. You will want to do the
same thing for both sides. Also, if you want to, you can just totally
disconnect the lights too. Just push in this tab and it comes right apart.
At this point we can just go ahead and install the hitch on the vehicle by
using the bolt holes that we took the tie downs off of. We are going to
leave these loose, just enough to hold the hitch up there.
Now that we got it held up there, what we can do is snug up the bolts, get
the hitch aligned where we want it, then we can drill out the holes for the
two last remaining holes. Behind this brace here is a flat piece of steel
that goes up against the part of the body going that way. It is kind of
hard to see, but you can run your drill through here and you will need a
half inch bit to go through the metal. You do this on both sides of the
vehicle. You have to use this wire puller that comes with the kit. You put
it up through the hole in the frame and pull it out through the tail light
area. Then you will pull your bolt and block right back through. Once you
have it through go ahead and drop the block on in and make sure it goes
down in all the way. Then thread in your bolt and pull that back on
Since we already have these bolts snugged up and these bolts are pretty
much going to stay where they are, we will go ahead and torque them down.
We will do the same thing for the other side. Go ahead and repeat the same
thing for the other side. At this point we can go ahead and reinstall the
Exhaust. We can put our spare tire
back up. Alright, we can reinstall our tail lights. One other note, this
hitch fits a variety of different years and here the hitch actually hits
against the bottom of the bumper. It will not hurt anything. The tolerance
is on the body components and vary up to a 1/4 inch or so. So you end up
with some deflection like this on sometimes different models. That covers
our install of 60818 from hidden hitch.
How to Change a Thermostat in a PT Cruiser

SafetyDang Tv Timing Belt and Water Pump Ep 4
Please read the FSM for all torque specs.
In this video we change my timing belt and water pump in my 2002 Toyota
Tacoma. This engine is the 5vz-fe 3.4L V6. Note check your cam seals and
other seals that may need to be changed. Also if you know how to loosen the
tensioner you can change them if they are bad.
SST can be made or bought. Here is the thread on the topic:
Also snap-on tensioner tool can snap your lower pulley timing belt
tensioner. So take the time to remove your ac pump and the other bracket.
ALSO if you have red Toyota coolant continue to use RED Toyota coolant. You
can only go back to red coolant if you flush the radiator.
How to change your timing belt on your PT Cruiser
This was the second half of it but has the most important half tooth on the
timing shown, first half was just tear down so i cut to the guts of it. The
PT cruiser is known to have a belt hitting noise before the timing belt is
actually due to be changed if you hear the tapping stop and get it replaced
or bye bye valves , this is a interference motor meaning if timing belt
breaks the valves will contact the pistons and major motor damage can or
will occur . Also if your upper motor mount is not broken you will need to
take the a/c line apart to get the bracket past it.
