for the 2.4L LE and BE PT Cruisers, the first thing you need to do is remove the air filter housing by un-clipping it. the tricky part is that the battery is held down by a clamp that requires you to remove the main electrical box and base. it looks harder than it is because it is simply two rubber grommets anchored to a metal plate. you can reach your hand underneath and feel for them, then push them upward through the anchor holes to release the base. you will see the clamp that holds the battery in place, just remove the two bolts that are holding it down and replace the battery with a new on and reverse the procedure. hope this was helpful, i spent almost 1.5 hours figuring it out

You may sneak it out with small fingers with out pulling out the starter.
If starter removal is required,Just unhook the battery cables,Remove the 2 bolts holding the starter on.

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.
* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

check to see if the serpantine belt is still there. It sounds like like it broke. this belt runs all of the accesories on the vehicle including the water pump. So if this happened it probably starting running hot too

This is a relatively common problem on these new Chryslre 300s.The failure is in the shifter assembly itself and it will need to be replaced. But for now, to limp around, you can actually still shift the car, you just cannot use the shifter.You will need to remove the center console and find where the shift linkage attaches to the shifter assembly. Remove the linkage and you can manually shift until you replace the shifter assembly.Here is how to remove the center console:
Apply the parking brake.Turn the ignition switch to the On position, apply the service brakes and place the gear selector lever into the Neutral position.Turn the ignition switch to the Off position and release the service brakes.Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.Remove the mat (2) from the cubby bin at the front of the floor console.Open the lid of the console rear bin and remove the mat (3) from the rear bin.Remove the two screws (1) that secure the front of the console shifter bezel to the console.Using a trim stick unsnap the console bezel from the console.Remove the shifter bezel from around the gear selector lever.
Remove the three 8 mm bolts (2) from the rear bin that secure the console to the floor panel transmission tunnel.Remove the two screws (3) that secure the front of the console to the instrument panel.Slide the console rearward far enough to access and disconnect the jumper wire connector (4) from the accessory power outlet on the underside of the console.Remove the floor console from the vehicle.-------------- Thankyou.
