    What year is it? You might have better luck at www.ptcruiserlinks.com, but not many members there have the CRD. We weren't allowed to have that diesel in the States.

    Welcome to Allpar. Have you checked the fuse/relay box out front under the hood? That feeds many of the larger branch circuits for the car.
    Do you have a service manual?

    The 2 screws mount the fuse box to the instrument panel, but I think that it is hard-wired to the instrument panel wiring harness. I don't think that the box can be disconnected for stand-alone service.
    You can remove the lower dash trim panel for better access to the back of the fuse box. See chapter 8O-3 for the Power Distribution section. See chapter 8W for wiring diagrams. See chapter 8E for instrument panel service.
    A 2001 PT should be roughly similar to a 2003 PT. The diesel system and RHD may have some electrical differences, so use the manual with this alert kept in mind:

    You CAN polish and clean the headlights. Lots of different "kits" out there. Personally, I like the Wipe New brand. Sells for $9.99 over here at O'Reilly Auto Parts. I used it on my PT and Grand Caravan and noticed a marked improvement. Like new? NO. But much better than when I started.

    Some kits offer a UV-proof final coat after the polish to prevent dulling and yellowing again for awhile. Start with a coarse grit and finish with a fine grit. Some use toothpaste.
    I have also replaced plastic headlamps with aftermarket for that brand-new look. The polishing helps like chuzz says, but they won't be crystal-clear and the lamp reflector dulls over time.
