$5 Door Lock Motor (Actuator) Fix

Wha'sup peoples.

So I, as many, have dead door lock motors on my 03 coupe which is out of warranty. I was pretty dusgusted with the dealer cost of ~150 for a door lock motor especially since i know from installing alarms and power door locks (in college) that aftermarket door lock motors cost less than 10 bucks.

I bought this door lock motor:
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=330-010

And installed it as shown in the pics below.
- I made the bracket holding the motor (.06" thick 5052 aluminum)
- drilled a hole in the door handle housing for the rod to pass through
- clipped off part of the plastic door lock lever
- trimmed some of the plastic ribs on the inside of the door panel to make clearance for the motor.
- Cut the wires going to the factory motor and hooked directly to the new motor. You can find the wires inside the door below the speaker (take out the speaker). I brought them out the rubber boot above the speaker.

This was the passenger door. I'm gonna try the drivers door tomorrow.

Again... cost was $5... Sweet.....

What a foktard. I'm glad he's banned.

Anyway, this is the kind of stuff that needs to be stickied in the DIY section. You should PM a mod and see if they'll move it over there. You should, for the purpose of a DIY thread, take a pic of the wiring where you spliced it into the factory wiring.

Thanks for the info!

This should be copied to the DIY section, this is great for people who are out of warrenty and dont want to be charged a ton by the dealer.
