Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Replacement of the timing belt bearing
This job is very time consuming.
Since the water pump is driven off the timing belt, it isn't much harder then doing a timing belt.
When I changed the pump on my 2.4 neon, I learned a few lessons.
One disconnect the passenger and front motor mounts. It will help create space to remove the passenger motor mount bracket.
Have a good crank pulley puller and a source of heat. A crank puller wasn't strong enough to pull my pulley off. Add heat and it came off with ease.
Those were my two biggest wastes of time when I changed my pump. I think your biggest headache will be the A/C lines. I don't have A/C in my neon, but I've pulled some parts from cars with it. It is a pain to work around.
The rest is pretty easy. If you are doing a water pump, think about a new timing belt tensioner . You can download a PDF file of the Neon/SRT4 manual there. It will tell you how to do a waterpump on the 2.4
