This is a fairly large job and it should only be done by someone that has some experience with this engine. The fit is very tight in the PT Cruiser and will involve jacking the engine up and down and a lot of screwing around trying to get all of the engine cover bolts out etc.
I would not even attempt to do this job without a good manual.
It is best if you replace the timing belt, belt tensioner, and idler pulleys while the job is being done.
The water pump is in the front of the engine and is run off of the timing belt.
If you look online at this picture: http://img.neons.org/archives/99RTproject7.jpg you will see that it is on the bottom of the engine on the right.
Bring it to a reputable shop that backs their work as it is easy to make a mistake on this job.

It's a pain to get out I just did mine belt and water pump it took about 3 times as long as I thought.
Make sure all the bolts are loose, make sure you have removed the tranmission mount as it gives you more room to move the engine. It's suggest you take the exhaust off as well as you can damage it if you jack the engine up too high. Lossen the bolts on the motor mount across from that plate, you will not be able to remove the motor mount but you can spin it allowing you to get that big plate out.
PM dhirst on ptcrew.com if you want some pics or more instructions.

Remove battery and battery support you'll be able to undo starter bolt's trough there and slip starter out.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."
GET A 3 SPOKE PULLEY EXTRACTOR AND SCREW IN THE BOLT BUT IN THE CRANKSHAFT HOLE PUT A MUCH SMALLER SCEW SO YOU WOUNT MESS THE INSIDE UP
