Manny, where did you find the clamp that you used to connect the rod and the oem actuator wire together?

The clamp comes with the actuator ( make sure you don't over tighten you'll crack the clamp)

The aftermarket actuator comes with two wires, I just bought 18g wire as recomended by the preveious members who started this thread and bought matching connector and tapped into the wire.
My portion of the DIY I contributed is on pg 3

Your welcome, it's better than spending 300. Per side to only have the issue most likely come back

Not sure there is a specific name for it.
I went out looking everywhere for this clamp prior to ordering the actuator and could not find anything that came close to it.
I thought the actuator did not come with one.

I ordered the same one as originally posted and I cracked the clamp over tighting it and I called them and told them I got a cracked clamp and they sent me a whole new actuator with clamp within a couple of days.

Bump, is this still safe to do? Mine just went out today (Passenger). It is getting power, windows work fine but won't lock via the remote or button inside, only manually un/locking it works.

I just sold the G last week and it worked like a champ everytime. I never had a problem. Like I said in the past, you go spend 300. Per side for OEM ones and yet still have a high probability that it will break on you again.

That is good to hear, mine is going intermittently (I can open the lock sometimes electronically, other times it dies). This car has so many electronic issue, same thing with my windows too (I need to replace the motors I think)!

Mannyz33 would you mind if I send you a PM once I get all the parts over to make sure I am doing right?
