Default Power Steering Reservior Desperately Needed!

I am in dyer need of a power steering reservior for an '03 PT Cruiser GT (Turbo). Anyone? Please? Had the f-ing mechanic break the hose connection off and now I'm screwed. Please shoot me a PM if you have one you want to sell or if you know of a source.

Look in the For Sale section for owners parting out their cruiser.

Are those the same as the NA cars?

Normally they are not.

Somebody confirm for me pleez - I show the part number for the '03 power steering reservoir as 05272351AA. I went through all the parts catalogs 2001 through 2010, the part number is the same for 2001 throu 2007, then the reservoir changes in 2008. They are all the same number for the 2.4l LHD PT Cruiser GT. The RHD is different. So this looks accurate but would like someone else to verify.

ChiPT - I'm contacting Denny who owns Cruiser Parts Warehouse, need you to PM me your contact info. If Denny doesn't have one, I'll contact three other vendors, but I always start with Denny.

Okay, Matheny doesn't have any listed online, and their parts department is closed. SteveWhite also, they only have a T&C res online, but their parts department is also closed. Left a message for Jack Salzman who owns Lake Norman CJD, he'll probably call me back shortly. He's got remote access to his parts counter over the internet so will ask if he's got one on hand, if so I'll pick it up and we can get it shipped to you. Right now, I'd say it's iffy at best. Denny is likely our best bet. If I can't get you one tonight, I may be able to tomorrow, but would you want it shipped overnight?

Steve White's res is only $24 new for the T&C, I'd say the PT might be a bit more since they don't make as many anymore. Let me know if you want me to continue the search, I don't want to be waking up people and using up favors if you can wait until tomorrow to speak about it.

Okay, Jack says he's not got that part number, the newer version ends AE instead of AA, but that is only due to improvements in it over the years. I need the last 9 digits of your VIN to be able to get the proper part number. Jack, being the owner, was able to find that part number at two local dealers here, and insanely it's a bit over $85. Wow!

So, if you can't get one local, and you can't find one any where else, I can get you one, have to confirm your VIN, the part number and the dealer's price, then the cost to get it to you. So, your call, that's all the help I can give right now. If you respond, please PM me or email me would be even better, otherwise I won't see the response until tomorrow afternoon and that will be too late for you.

Also, if Denny has one it'll be way cheaper. I've left him a message and an email, not sure if I will hear back from him tonight or not.

I found 3 - 4 turbo PT's in salvage yards in Illinois. Not sure how far from Chicago they are / He is...

Found them on Car-Part.com

I've been to a few salvage yards here. The problem is all the reserviors for the '03 PT Cruiser GT I have come across were cracked or already gone. Ordered two from a salvage yard already, was assured the reservior would be attached..but it was not in either case.

Spent 6 hours looking for one today. My last resort is to buy the pump assembly from a dealer for $415.00 (minus the $50.00 core refund).
