We'll try this again. Stay on topic, No arguments. Don't like what was said, say what you have to and let the reader decide what to believe. Above all .....RESPECT!

Well just got back from the pick and pull and scored myself the decorative engine cover from an 01 for $5..i screwed the studs into my intake and snapped the cover on .. looks pretty good, does look like it rubs on the power steering cap a bit..

Hi all,today I today I replaced my old radiator and lower radiator support brace with new ones due to backing in a ditch in the dark, the job went great...only bled once and no bad words were said which is unusual for me...was amazed how easy the job was and I learned something that might be of use to someone else,pt cruisers used at least 2 different lower radiator support braces, I purchased one on eBay that stated it fit 01 thru 10,(mine is an 07),
And of course when it arrived it was different than mine,on the box it said it fit 01 to 05 models,I was pretty upset at first as I had waited 3 weeks for the part with the pt up on Jack stands,after a close examination my 07 brace was much taller, yet the mounting bolt pattern was the same on both,and the differences in the 2 braces were "under" the radiator on the brace,in other words the 01 to 05 brace would still put the radiator in the same place height wise,the difference was my 07 brace hangs down lower than the 01 to 05 brace, I installed the new one and had to modify it just slightly so the lower radiator hose wouldn't rub on the lip of the brace,and had to fab up 3 spacers where the bumper cover attaches,easy peazy..now the lower brace has a bit more ground clearence...hope this might help someone...next week I install a split rear hatch cover and will post some pics of the install...cheers!

Yelled at my Dad to check the coolant and oil in case the heater core is still "weeping" He is driving the thing like it is a regular car. :) Probably getting it back Saturday.

Welcome to the forum :coolblue:

Please go to the Welcome New PT Cruiser Members section and create an intro thread :cool:

You also might want to let the EBay seller know about the issue with the part and their ad and what you went through. They might refund some of your purchase price due to your inconvenience and the error with the ad. Doesn't hurt to ask as they would probably refund a little rather than get the part back. ;)
