Sorry but there's no easy way, need to jack car up and set some jack stands, disconnect battery, under car on passenger side back of engine is where he alternator will have to come out, also one way to save money, is buy the part yourself, many shop will install your part, shop around, let them deal with the pain in installing the alternator, good luck.

I HAVE A 2003 PT CRUISER AND THE BATTRY LIGHT IS ON NEW BATTERY NEW ALT AND THEY SAY IT IS THE VOLTAGE REG


The PT cruiser uses a field signal from the PCM to regulate the voltage. If you are not getting approximately 14 volts at the battery terminals when the engine is running, either:
  1. The replacement alternator is faulty.
  2. The generator field control signal from the PCM is faulty.
  3. The Fusible Link between the alternator and the Starter Motor (which is also the same electrical point as the battery positive terminal is open.
Use the diagram below and check the alternator output at the point labeled "A11 6 BK/GY" If this is 14 volts and there is not 14 volts at the battery terminals, then the Fusible link is bad. If there is no voltage or way less than 15 volts at the alternator, then the alternator or the PCM field signal is bad. Ensure the connector from the PCM is connected properly.

Location of crankshaft position sensor for 2003 pt cruiser


Had this problem. The crankshaft position sensor (on 2003 non-turbo) is located directly under the starter. The Haynes and Chilton books will tell you the complete opposite. They state that it is located near the alternator. WRONG. Oh, it is really a pain to get to FYI.

Pt cruiser electrical


It could be your alternator. If the battery light is on thats usualy what thats a sign of and areason it may still run and not accelarate is your battery has enough juice to start it, but not to keep it running. If this is the case try hooking jumper cables to it and seeing if you can throttle it up with them hooked up.
