Please post where you live and the shop that wanted $500 for replacing the alternator. I want to make sure I never go near that place.

I would suggest that before replacing the alternator to check the wire harness from the crankshaft sensor to the PCM. This is a very common problem with the 2001 & 2002 PT Cruisers. Some members replaced their alternator only to find out it was a short in the F terminal control wire caused by the wire harness dropping down from a broken clip rubbing on the inner CV axle boot and rubbed all the way through the loom and wire shorting it to ground.

Local alternator shop said they couldn't get rebuild parts for the alternator.

I've replaced alternator on my 06 with a $35 recycle yard unit and have had no problems with it.
