Replaced bad Front driver side lock actuator on e90 325i

Long story made short: A couple of months ago my front lock actuator went out, I've just recently got to replacing it.
Bought the part from ECS tuning.
Here's a video how to replace it.

Here is also a full DIY on it. You can see the cables I'm talking about.

My Notes on it: 1) The hardest part for me was trying to remove the two cables that connects to the old lock actuator and connecting the same cables to the new one. 2) Lining up the holes on the new actuator to put the screws in.

So good luck doing this DIY, definitely better than paying $400+ to get the stealership to do it.
