2001 PT headlight access door
 
I have a 2001 PT Cruiser, Touring Edition, and I was looking to change the headlight bulbs - they are original. How do you open up the access door? I am trying to do this without having to remove the front wheels.

Thanks

Turn the wheel one way or the other depending on which side your on till you have access to the rubber flap. The rubber door has tabs on all sides. Use a flat bladed screwdriver or your fingers and gently pry on the outer edges as the whole "door" just pulls off.

This is what the access door looks like:

At the top of the above pic is a tab where you can insert a screwdriver blade and gently pop off the panel. You can also try turning the wheels inward on the side you are working on, it may give you a little more room to work.

You have to have small hands to change the light bulbs, especially being able to reach the high beams.

Thanks, I will try it again. Unfortunately the weather here won't be above 40 for a while and it is dark an hour earlier. I should have started this a little earlier in the year.
