Question Help! Power Steering resevoir Cap

I opened the hood today and found that my power steering reservoir cap was missing. I have no idea how it feel off.

As I look to get a replacement, I can't determine for sure which is the correct cap for my 2003. I see some listed as fitting 2001 to 2003 and others from 2003-2010. It seems that there are two possible parts for my 2003....how can I know which is correct for my 2003?

Thanks,

The odds are that the listing as fitting 2001 to 2003 would be the correct one but if you want to verify it you can call the dealer with your VIN number and get the manufacture part number of the Power Steering Reservoir Cap you need.

I had no luck with the dealer. They provided a part number for the 2006-2010
Searching the web for Chrysler sites which accepted the VIN yielded no answers
Since I don't have one to compare against, I have no idea which is right.

Since you went through the trouble of calling the dealer I search for it and I finally found it. Seems the dealer didn't want to be bothered.

2003 Power Steering Reservoir Cap

Part #05093490AA is for CAP, Power Steering Reservoir EDV type engine.

Part #05066031AA is for CAP, Power Steering Reservoir ECC & EDZ type engine

Link below is for one of the CAP's
CAP. Power Steering Reservoir made by Mopar. #05066031AA

I'm not familiar with the three letter codes above, but from what I can tell my non turbo gas 2.4L is an EDZ. In which case the cap is #05066031AA
This is the same number the dealer provided. But a search on this number alone shows 2006-2010
#05066031AA: Chrysler. Power Steering Reservoir Cap
#05066031AA: Power Steering Reservoir Cap


According to your link the #05066031AA fits ever EDZ from 2001-2010
Its all very confusing....Chrysler is confusing.

The part numbers I posted came out of the 2003 PT Cruiser Parts Catalog.
