Missing Pencil Strut
 
I'm not sure if this it technically a suspension part but I noticed that my 2005 PT Cruiser is missing the pencil strut. Does anyone know the part number for this or a link to a place to buy a replacement?

NOOOOO!

Don't drive it. Your PT will EXPLODE without the pencil strut! :eek:

Just kidding....... :D


Part number is likely 04656957AB or 04656957AA. One number is just older than the other. They are the same part. Looks like $5.48 plus shipping.

Here's a link:

2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser. #04656957AB: STRUT. Front Suspension.

Be sure to verify this fitment for yourself. ;)

I left mine off most all last year. :eek: In fact I just found it the other day when packing xmas decoration to go back in storage.

IMG that means I ran all summer "RACING" my PT Cruiser without the pencil strut. :eek:

No wonder I only ran in the high.... in the 1320 ;)
:rolleyes:


:cool:

Only $16.84 with shipping. I wish the picture actually showed the product though to verify it is the correct part. I did plug in my Model/Year and it came up with the same part number.

Oh that's funny..

I just put 04656957AB into the Google Images. The first photo that comes up is the pencil strut on MY 2001 PT. In the photo I'm reinstalling it with MY air ratchet. I guess I'm famous now. :dance2:
