Customer Question
I have a Chrysler...

I have a Chrysler 2008 pt cruiser that the rear hatch will not open with the touch barb. I took it to my mechanic and he said it was the power lock he took the back panel off now I hear the lock clicking. I went to the dealer to get the part to fix it and he said 220.00 plus tax!. Then he told me I couldn't get a refund if it was the wron part. What part do you think I Need

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

I have actually had this problem for two weeks. I only heard the noise today due to the mechanic taking off the inner panel of the rear hatch. I can actually see the lock. Even when the car is sunning you can hear the lock clicking like it is trying to release.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your PT Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

I actually took it to my mechanic. He is saying we can get the part from the junk yard. I am talking to you to see what part you think i need

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it and thank you

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
