Dealership list price is $235.75.

Re: Liftgate touchpad replacement

Re: 2nd-Gen Turbo Lite: SEEKING WHEEL IDEAS

My fault, I guess I have forgotten that the PT has been out of production now for several years ;)

Re: 2nd-Gen Turbo Lite: SEEKING WHEEL IDEAS

What's wrong with any of the stock wheels that came on PT's? Seems like there are plenty of choices, you know they will fit, and they look pretty good :cool:

Re: Bought PT...150,000 miles...what should I have done to it?

Call your local dealership for the correct part #, then search online for it.

Re: Square Peg in a Round Hole

The kit you posted is for a double din stereo.

This should be the correct one for a single din unit:
