Then after trying a combination of trying to open while unlocking with the fob I managed to open it. Only to then have all locks not working with the fob for a couple of minutes. Then everything started working again except the faulty door. Any tips before I start dismantling the door? It's annoying to leave it like this as the door is not operational at all. I have two kids and to have them going in from one side to have them stepping on my seats is not something I enjoy watching.


To be honest i would suggest replacing the actuators.
ran into same problem early this week. just got replacing all front and rear passenger.
The total cost was ~160.
~74 for the front set and 74 fro the rear passenger.
and 1.09 for the 15 amp fuze.

the rear door is the easiest. took about 25 minutes to replace. well i had replaced the window regulator before so i knew how to go about.

the driver side is the hardest.

Many thanks to the OP for the DIY.

by the way if you run into any problems PM me.
