    I am going to replace my water pump, timing belt and tensioner on my
    2.4L 2001 pt cruiser. I wanted to solicit any counsel and/or advice
    from group members who have done this in the past.

    Also, is it truely necessary to discharge my a/c before beginning this

    The procedure that I have for a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus with a 2.4, does
    not mention anything about having to discharge the A/C system. That
    could be different for a PT cruiser, but I doubt if the compressor is
    mounted the same way.

    If you replace the timing belt tensioner to the newer style, the belt
    covers will need to be replaced too, in order to work with the new
    tensioner. The new tensioner is a "wind up" design, as opposed to a
    "plunger" type.
