Where is the door actuator?

787 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  OldNewJeeper
Okay, I am looking to replace the door lock actuator.

So, can anyone provide a diagram for where the blinking thing is? I took the door panel off, but I don't know where it is! I know this sounds stupid but I really am confused about this thing.

Also, how to lube the door lock to avoid this in the future. Do I just spray the locking mechanism with silicone spray? Can you use this spray on the door hinges?

Thanks in advance.

I feel really stupid. Sorry.

I just could not see how it worked until I realized that the box that says "Left Front" actually had a "Right Rear" actuator in it! I figured that out when I found the right rear actuator and removed it, and started comparing what I was given by the dealer parts department. This is the second time they have given me boxed parts with the wrong part or label.

Thanks for the help.

See additional Post on rear door problem. First I got the front actuators in without a problem. And the rear ones went slick and smooth until the last one...

It will not open! HELP!

I installed new actuator on right rear door. Now it will not open. I had some "help" and I think the door was closed while I was testing the electrical connection. I don't know if I connected the outside handle rod but given the situation I would guess not. The inner door latch will not open it either, I am guessing that the [email protected]# D#[email protected] child protection switch was either set on at factory or got switched in install.

So here is the question. How can I open a rear door? I can lower the window. I could remove the back seat guess but I don' want to if some one has a cool trick.

Thanks.
