Default MAD AS HECK! Taillights changed!!!

Ok so before I sent my lil PT off into the fields of Valhalla to roam and play with other PT Cruisers, I Removed some after market parts one being the taillights. I found a good deal on the retro style lights on eBay and love them, and being only a few weeks old I was not about to send them off with my old Cruiser. However as I go to swap out the taillights I find that they changed the connectors between the 2001 and the 2008, so they do not fit, at least not right away. I could dremel a little to get the connector in or just find the 2001 connectors and switch them out. Some times it does not pay to be cheap.

Thumbs up Re: MAD AS HECK! Taillights changed!!!

a while back some one else here had the same problem and a solution i think that was posted, was a set of pigtail's for the tail lights. try using the search here and see what comes up
It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile,
and one nut to scatter it all over the road

2006, along with changing the inside and outside features, Chrysler updated the electrics. I bigger fuse/relay box called the TIPM for the new models vs two separate boxes in the 00-05 models.

As was just said by mityqwik, a search on taillights might have shown the differences that were done to the lights.
