Bp Auto Spares India Explains Steps to Repair a Car Door Lock Actuator
The functionality of the power door lock actuator is quintessential to a car door lock repair. In case a remote controller or a unlock switch fails to open the door, there is a fair chance that an actuator is faulty.
He further instructs," After the battery is disconnected, start removing the door panel of the affected door with a help of a flat screwdriver. Once all the clips are loose and the panel is removed, remove the plastic sheeting behind the door panel. Near the handle of the door, there are two metal cables and few clips, remove them. You'll see the actuator. In order to remove it, unscrew the 10mm bolts from above and below it and then unscrew the three screws from the door lock. Let the actuator drop down and then disconnect the black electric connector. Now pull out the lock and actuator assembly along with the cables." He further assists, "Once the actuator is out in the open, it's time to repair it. Remove the electric motors from the actuators; since it isn't threaded into the actuator, there is no need to worry about the cables. Disintegrate the electric motor carefully and with the help of electrical parts cleaner wipe out the built-up grease from the brushes. Test the motor by connecting a 9-volt battery to the motor lead points. Put the motor back in, similar to how you have taken it out in the first place.
Concluding this he says, "Attach the plastic door lock actuator back onto the assembly with two screws. Clean and reconnect the actuator with the black electrical connector. Secure the actuator with the bolts and screws. Reconnect the metal cables near the door handle and reinstall the clear plastic sheeting. Once everything is done with the affected door, go to the front of the car, open the hood and reconnect the ground cable back onto the battery's negative post, remove the battery saver and test the new door lock actuator."
