should be straight forward. but if you are at all worried, just grind the shaft.. just do it slowly until the gear fits in...

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for these threads. I could not have made this fix without all of this valuable info.

Here is a decent pic of the clips n rods insatlled


To secure the motor housing, I used 5-minute epoxy. I just put it in 5 locations around the seam.


This helped me a lot. I just put one of the bold in and I held the door lock module up while I worked on it.


I did have some challenges along the way.

This is when this tuned bad.......see the 2 cracks, this part was bad. What to do.....


I decided to try and fix it. So I made this part to replace the rod mount.


Here is my new rod mount.


and here it is with the clip in it.


Thanks again to all that have made these threads, it was a great help to me.

Due to the issue rms2k ran into above, I have to go back in there once my new (used) door handle gets here tomorrow..and once put everything together and tried to lock the doors there is an extremely loud buzzing sound coming that door. Is this because that housing .is coming loose or did I put something together wrong ?

I've read about gluing or zip tying that piece, I'm hoping that's the issue

Just tackled this project today, took me about 2-3 hrs from start to finish. The rod that was attached to the white clip was the hardest since the rod has more of a ball like shape at the end compared to the other rods. With some force it finally came up, luckily i didn't break anything. The second time consuming thing was shaving the mabuchi motor since I don't own a dremel. All it in all easy fix for only $5 bucks and a few more dollars in a couple tools, beats having to pay $100+ for the whole part. Thanks for the write-up.

Well, I tried to fix my passenger door lock following this instructions. I must've put the parts back wrong, because when I closed the door, now I can't open it anymore from the inside or the outside. I feel like a complete idiot right now. Anyone can help me out? I feel like I made a really boneheaded mistake, the linkages are not aligned correctly which is why the locking mechanism that locks onto the latch is not releasing anymore... I think I'm going to have to pay through the nose to open it up again huh?

Either the rods that connect the lock assembly to the handle was reassembled incorrectly, or the linkage between the actuator and the lock assembly was reassembled incorrectly.

You should probably upload a pix illustrating your problem, since you have the assembly out of the car and we don't.

I can't get pics of it because The door is closed with the locking mechanism and it's stuck, I can't open it from inside or outside... I just need to know what tab I need to push or pull in order to release the latch on the mechanism..it's this huge black metal magnetic thingy?

I would pull on the rods that would normally be connected to the door handles.

The rods are off heheh... They were not placed back in the right position...that's why I have to use my fingers or screwdriver in order to pull on something that normally the rods would release the latch.... sorry I really don't mean to be so difficult!~!! Like I said I really screwed the pooch on this one..
