Okay... I would suggest you get all your facts straight before telling someone how to replace PT Cruiser Oil Pressure Switch.. What need to be done is: Raise the passenger front of the vehicle Remove Wheel, Caliper, Tie Rod connecting to the Spindle. Unbolt Axle Unbolt Strut Assembly at Spindle and Remove Lower Strut Bolts. Unbolt and Remove Axle from the Spindle Remove Axle from the Transmission and lay aside Now you can reach the Oil Pressure Switch to replace it.
