Re: Actuators

Probably need some lithium grease put on the actuators so they move better. I had to do this to mine and they work almost as good as new.

You should be able to hear these actuators engage and dis-engage Clunk, lock...clunk...unlock. Mine are pretty loud. Pull your door panels..I had the same problem, but found out it was just the linkage that came loose.
