Door lock actuator

So the passenger door lock actuator stopped working the other day. Checked the wiring and I have voltage at the plug for lock/unlock called the dealer and they said it wasn't under warranty. Just curious if anyone else had had this issue? It's an 08 with 57k on it. Dealer quoted $418 for a new actuator.

Funny you should mention this. This just happened to me and I checked the actuator and I have power to it. This tells me that the little motor inside has burned out. Of course Toyota wont sell just the little motor, but instead, sells the entire actuator itself. The actuators run from $160 for aftermarket or about $350 - $400 from the stealership. I found a couple of sites that will help you out, because all you need to do is replace the motor which costs...... $5. You have to remove the door panel and take the actuator apart, but its worth it in my book. I am going to be doing a write up once I get my parts in.

I might order that motor then I have access to alldata for free so I planned to use that to get the actuator out.

Yeah, it's a very common problem across the board for Toyotas. Mine went out last year, then all of the sudden they started working again a few months ago. Taking the door apart to get to it is easy, but I'm going the route of trying to replace just the motor

From what I saw on all data you had to take out the window an the track just to get to the actuator? Anyone else know that this is true?

Has anyone replaced one of these themselves? I ordered the part from TRD Sparks and saved almost $100. I also found the DIY on the door panel removal.

How difficult is it to replace the lock and actuator once the panel is off? I think the dealer quoted like two hours of labor.

Thanks!

If you bought the oem actuator, replacing it is easy. Just take off the door panel, unscrew the actuator bolts and unplug the connector and manuver it out. It'll be tight but will come out without taking out the door channel. Install is reverse.

Do you have any use for the old one? If not, I'd like to have it to play around and see if I can fix it.

Are you sure that's the right motor? Is it a direct replacement? I would think that the motor in the actuator would have a gear or thread on the shaft.

I have an 08 with about 50k and my back left went out

That is just to replace the motor, not all the gears or whatever else is part of the whole lock mechanism. You can buy the entire assembly for probably a few hundred dollars from Toyota.
