Default aftermarket tail lights question

Im shopping for aftermarket taillights and most of them are 01-05. I have a 2008. Are all years pt cruiser's interchangeable?

I thought that they only changed the headlights on 2nd gens and taillights stayed the same.

So when shopping online can I buy 01-05?

I have an 07 Cruiser and purchased after market tail lights listed for 01 to 05 PT's (Spec-D Euro Tail Lights Chrome) (LT-PTC01-APC)

On the 06 and above the bulb socket has three tabs on the pig tail. One (1) large one and two (2)smaller ones.

The first generation lens housing will have two receptor slots for the bulb sockets.

To make the 06 and above PT's bulb socket pig tails fit, remove one of the smaller tabs and the socket will twist in securely to older housing design. (I used a Stanley knife and a needle nose to take the tab off.)

The tail lights that I purchased fit perfectly with the small exception of the bulb socket assembly into the lens housing as I mentioned. Everything else lines up perfectly.





It's an easy mod to make them fit.



An easy mod.

Yep.

I put the 2nd Gen OEM tail lights on my 1 Gen PT. I did it with a Dremel tool and removed the tabs inside the sockets as seen below and colored red:
