Anyone have a vendor & part # for the driver door lock actuator, rather not mess with the motor.


Oh well, maybe I'll mess with the motor.

Does the actuator just unclip or unscrew to get it open?


Thanks!

Clips. The clips are easy to break, and I and a few others have found the ebay motor replacement to not work well. Mine was too strong, and would rip the actuator housing a part. For another member, it would spasm out also.

Rock auto is Standard Motor Products/Intermotor - not familiar with those brands.

Not sure is Sewell a dealer?

I'd take the oem if that's the case. Anyone know?

Thanks!

Yes, Sewell is a dealer based out of Dallas and is %100 OEM and is basically the same parts that was put on your car from the factory. Rockauto is a reputable third party that offers OEM and OE parts and are a vendor here as well. I've gone through both several times, really can't go wrong either way.

Here is the video, I am going to try and play with the exposure to brighten up some of the under exposed sections.

If I need to clarify anything post a comment on the video or post here and I'll add notations to it.

There is always a little "suspense" the first time you hit the button to see if it works.

Mine is in the process of going out. Sometimes it works and sometimes it don't. Guess I will be performing this DIY very soon.
