I replaced the Passenger door actuator with one from All Electric, and I have to say I am very pleased with the fix. I didn't take the OE one out, I just mounted the new one inside the door and connected it to the existing linkeage. The actuator works great, what a great inexpensive fix. Thank you for this site and the people involved in it, I saved a ton of money not having the dealer fix it.

Default 2005 Liberty- Drivers side door lock

Hello,
This forum is one of the best I have read. So now I am faced with a non working door lock on the drivers side door. Does exactly what you described- moves a little but needs the key to open.
Does anyone have a picture of what this actuator looks like? And if I screw up the repair- not great at following instructions- where can I buy the replacement part and what is it called?
Thanks, Jeff

Default Repair for Jeep?

Are you inquiring about a door actuator fix for your jeep? Your profile says diesel jeep, just wondering and making sure we're on the same page of a Superduty door fix!

The lock motors I used look like this: POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR 2-WIRE STYLE BRAND NEW: eBay Motors (item 230498310257 end time Aug-11-10 09:26:07 PDT) but were red. I bought a dozen of them and did a pictorial essay of how I replaced mine and tried to sell the whole thing on eBay for $24.95 with no takers. I paid $5.50 each at some electronics place mentioned earlier in the Ford arena. They work totally perfectly and have for a year and a half or more. Anyone want the pictures with description of how I did it on a 99 Ford F350, I'd be willing to discuss getting the stuff to you, but I don't think Dieselbombers wants ads on this site, so you have to contact me. If you want to discuss further, I'm at [email protected]. The picture file is wasy too big to send as an eMail attachment, at least via yahoo where I live. If you're any where near Los Altos, CA, I'd be glad to help you with the project on any car. You'd need a manual so we can get the door panel off without trashing it.

Sorry for slow reply. I've been up in the mountains working a job where there's no cell or computer service.

I didn't bopther taking out the factory motor. I used the All Electronics aftermarket motor mentioned in an earlier thrread and just disconnected the factory motor. The replacement motor overrides the ford motor and works very well.

I put toghether a set of photographs and instructions on how I did the replacement and tried to market it on eBay to no avail. If you're good enough to get the factory motor out, you could do this yourself. If you want I'd send you the pictures with the notations on how I did it for ten bucks. If you want I'll throw in an aftermarket motor for another ten or you can buy them on eBay for closer to $7 including shipping.

I tried sending my documentary on my replacement as an eMail attachment, but the file is way too big for most eMail servers, so I've just been printing them up and popping them in the mail.

I'd do it on eBay as a "Buy It Now" transaction. You'd get full buyer protection, but what I'm really looking for is a nice positive feedback so I can sell more of these.

I talked a guy in Half Moon Bay through it and he didn't have any trouble at all. Like I say if you're good enough to get the factory motor out, you can likely handle this. Over the last few years I've replaced all my motors and they're working great.

you can find me at [email protected]
