I had another door lock actuator fail on me today. I've been using these from Parts Express. They work pretty well and are dirt cheap, but only seem to be lasting about 6-8 months. Where did those of you who have added aftermarket actuators buy yours? It's not a big deal since I have an extra one lying around, but what really sucks is that I went swimming tonight and forgot my keys were in my pocket and I screwed up my alarm remote. I'm going to take it apart tonight and see if it works after it dries out.

hey...thats pretty cheap...3.85? not bad at all...can you take a picture of how the acutator is installed...and post it up...sometimes when its a restrictive area...the motor tends to weaken after awhile and just die out...

Wow, someone else actually did this?
I put in 2 of these about a year ago (this month).
They've been fine ever since. Since it was a year
ago, I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I got them from
Bulldog Security Accessories Page

The price was a bit much compared to the ones you're
showing, but hey, no problems yet.

Agh..I spoke too soon. I blew up both actuators, and
had to get new ones. Anyway, the new ones I got are
slightly bigger than the old ones, and don't fit in the
same spot.

Do you guys have a picture of where you put yours?...
or at least a pretty good description?

theres a part in the middle of the door...where theres a large cut out...put the actuator there, and bend the rod according to the lock/unlock rod and cut any excess from the actuator rod. drill in some straps and screw your actuator to that...and make sure it doesnt move when its locking and unlocking...and u should have no problem..show us a picture of your install...

yea, I was trying to avoid having to bend the actuator's
rod, but I guess there's no way around that (unless
you get very small actuators). oh well.

Here's one picture I found (this is not mine).
Hopefully this will help anyone else doing this install.
I'll post mine when I'm done:

I put mine a few days ago. They fit to the left of the door opener lever, best 30 bucks ever, I have keyless entry now with my alarm.

on a side note I hate that sticky goo crap!

Agh, no pictures?

1. You said the left of the lever, but which door?
The "left" is different on both doors.
2. It fit to the left of the handle, and the panel still went back on the door?
3. Was your actuator about the size of the one in the
picture above, or was it smaller?

Something like this?


Sorry to ask so many questions, but you're the first
person that was specific in the location.
