The drive train could be binding up when hard turns are done. its common on AWD vehicles, but there should not be any clunking or noises. its possible you have worn rear drive shaft joints? i dont think it would be the half shafts due to the dont turn. or mover up and down that much. the drive shaft to the rear diff would have more stress.

I would have a garage check it out ASAP. cause you would need someone under there to check. i dont suggest doing that in your driveway for saftey reasons. hopefully its something thats not too expensive.

SOURCE: Replacing bulbs in tail lights in a Town and Country.

  1. Open your tailgate.
  2. Look for two (2) round flat black discs about the size of a dime (but thicker) on the inside of the body (between the red lens and the weather striping).
  3. Using a pair of pliers, pull out each of these two discs.
    • Note they are in tight and may require a fair bit of force to remove.
  4. Make sure the inner part of the disc also comes out. There are two parts to this system, a grommet and a plug:
    1. Push the plug backwards through the grommet.
      • The grommet fits into the actual hole in the body, and is spread by the plug, the pressure holding them in place.
    2. Carefully remove both grommet and plug.
      • The lens assembly will fall away from the vehicle when you pull out the second grommet so be careful.
  5. Note the wiring harness that connects to a plug inside. Beside that plug are two holders for the actual bulbs.
  6. Remove the holder by pressing the sides inwards and pulling. The light socket should come out.

SOURCE: CHRYSLER town and country mini van turn signal/flasher

I have a 2005 Chrysler T&C. The turn signal would not work at all or activate incorrect side. The switch is easy to remove as described by dukecityman.

Once the switch is of, it has four screws holding it together.I took this apart to find that there was a circuit-board which was contaminated with dirt. wiped it of, put it back together, working fine.

If you take it apart use caution. there are parts on the "top" which will fall out. ( they go right back in) The circuit-board is on the "bottom" half. You really only need to take this part off. (less moving parts)

Your going to replace it anyway, whats the harm?

SOURCE: replace rear bumper 2001 town and country van

Depends on how baddly the whole car is bent and how much you pay your self. You can do it, and if it's bent bad enought that you can't expect to pay mor than flat rate anyway because thier not just changing the bumper cover and or the bumper core and or the bumper core supports and or painting the new bumper cover and or replacing or straightening the care and even pulling the frame.. Most body shops and dealers will estimate this job but they have to see it because of the stroy I just told. They most often estimate for free as your insureance companies adjuster wight also. They may even come to your work or home to see the problem. If you want to keep the insurance man out of the loop then go to an auto parts store that sells auto paint and supplies. They'll tellyou about their customers and what to expect from them. and you'll hear alot of different prices, including look good or look good and be good and strong, all the prices wil be different.

My 1997 chrysler t &c is making a loud clunking noise, steers hard and overheats. Mechanic says it's tension pully. does that sound right


It sounds like it to me. Your van has a serpentine belt which is pulled tightly by the tensioner pulley, hint the name "tension" pulley. If this is defective you will experience the problems/symptoms you have listed, hard steering, over heating, and the clunking,which must be the defective tension pulley. All those problems should resolve immediately after it is replaced. Don't forget to replace the serpentine belt too, for preventative measures. How this helps...

Where is the fuse for the passenger power seat in a 2009 Chrysler Town & Counrty?


If a sound is occurring then there should be power at the switch. Check under the seat and make sure the plug into the seat adjustment motor is fully connected to the motor. (there may be 2 motors so be sure to check both motors). If not then reinstall the plug back on the motor(s). It should work fine.

I have a 02 chrysler town and country awd. The front driveshaft was removed when I bought the van. I was told this was done to get better fuel milage. The front yoke spins free and the rear driveshaft...


Its hard to understand what you are asking?The front driveshafts are attached to the wheels. the rear wont turn if the wheels are on the ground. I would never buy a car with parts disconnected. sounds like BS.
