Question about 2006 Chrysler Sebring
I can't pay for the labor right now and want to replace the part myself. Question that I have, being good with tools, but not part names, I can't figure out how to remove the large piece (manifold? It's black, the spark plugs are in front and behind this massive piece) that is to the right of the bypass housing assy. Are there some screws I haven't found that are preventing me from getting this large part off so that I can access the ailing part easily. Yes, I am a girl....

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

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

thought i already answered this... must have been for someone else... you should be able to access the bulb from within the engine compartment... if it's on the side of the battery you may have to remove it. do not touch the bulb with your fingers as that shortens the life of it.

Removing the intake is no prob. on these. Assuming this is a non turbo model, you remove the two bolts holding the egr tube flange at the back of the intake. You will have a couple wire clips you need to dissconect and small vacum hoses that will be easily noticable as you try to move the intake aside, but there is a row of small bolts at the front inbetween the intake rails holding the upper intake to the lower. Seperate the manifold by removing these bolts. it has rubber gaskets that stay right with the manifold you do not need to replace at reassembley. This will allow you to move it far enough to change the plugs. Hope this helps.

You don't have to remove the upper intake lossen all the manifold bolts and lift the manifold just enough to get the water outlet out a couple of swivel sockets are good for that job.
