Before you attempt that job make sure you go in and take a look at the UTUBE HOW TO REPLACE THAT ON YOUR PT CRUSIOR might be a little more to it then you think..however your answer is no...once you get the belt tensioner on...just done my timing belt..good luck

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."
Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.
I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.
Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.

Its got damage, bent valves. replace every thing on timing belt, tensioner, pulleys, water pump. The head needs to go to a machine shop and bent valves replaced.

I don't know if your serpentine belt layout is the same as mine. I have a 2005 2.4TD. I worked out that the tensioner is spring loaded and needed to be turned using a very long spanner (can't remember the size as I used an adjustable spanner with a piece of pipe to get the length - 19mm sounds right). Get the belt wrapped round the other pulleys and then turn the tensioner pulley nut a quarter turn or so then the belt should slip onto the last idler pulley. Make sure all pulleys have any rubber residues and oil/muck cleaned off. Very tight for space so you'll probable end up using yours fingernails and a rag with some petrol or WD40 on it. Re-fitting the engine pan was the worst bit. **** design for the fittings. Replaced these with self-tapper screws to make sure it stays on as the original clips don't like being taken off and put on too many times. Thanks Chrysler. By the way I'm never buying a Chrysler again. Had to replace both wishbones after 3 years - a common problem I'm told - and also this is the 4th serpentine belt in 8 months and its going to be an expensive process of deduction to find out what the problem is. Recirculate button for the aircon has also decided to stop working. Great news given that its minus 3 outside and the car takes 20 minutes to warm up the interior as its sucking in cold external air. I've also got a 1996 Toyota Picnic 2.0 auto with double the mileage that I've owned for 5 years. All I've ever had to do with that is replace a rear lightbulb and I know the previous owner who never had a fault with it. 14 years old and only needed one bulb changed in all that time! Still on the second set of tyres too. Best car I've ever had. The Cruiser is turning out to be as expensive to maintain as my old Citroen XM, and they are famous for maintenance problems. Lovely car though. Hope this helps and puts people off buying Chrysler ****...
