Default Center Dash Panels 01-05 Interchangeable?

Hey folks,
are the center dash panels from 01 - 05 interchangeable? I don't see any new 02's out there and would like to avoid used, aged plastic on ebay if possible.
I did see a source for new center panels for 05's. Hoping Gen 1 is one size fits all!
My mechanic had to pull the entire dash to change my a/c coil... some parts held up better than others !
Thanks,
Peter

Thanks Frank! I've put in a lot of work on the exterior. With little effort, the interior has remained pristine up 'til this weekend. If I can get my mechanical issues straightened out I want to get the interior back in order for the spring.
Thank you sir!

There was a factory problem with center dash bezels in 2001 and some 2002 PT's. The Taupe colored paint on them would sometimes peel after several years. The dashboards tended to crack in these models as well. It you get a center bezel from a 2003 thru 2005 PT, you will not have this problem in the future.

Thanks! I had a good 17 years without any interior issues other than the dashboard cover. The recent damage during a repair was disappointing; but understandable. Great news on the newer models... maybe I'll get 17 more years!!!

Hey gang, hoping everyone is doing well. Strange days indeed.
I struck out on the availability of the center bezel I was looking at.
Today's question: What is the difference between center bezels for PT's with or without Air Conditioning?
Is it a fit issue or simply the graphics on the part showing AC controls? Not giving up on getting my interior back to new!

Thanks, and take care!

Over near a decade of visiting junkyard PT Cruisers, I saw one with an odd center bezel. It did not have A/C control icons on the climate control panel.
I surmised that it was a fleet car (perhaps logos-don't remember) delivered with A/C.

Other than that graphic difference, no! No difference. Be safe.
