Yeah, looks like the drivers door actuator. With the door trim off, unplug it and see if the others stay locked/unlocked. Finally, disconnect the snipper button and it's connecting rod, plug the actuator back in to it's loom and see if it does the same. Check the wiring for that door just in case the wiring has been pinched, crushed, etc.
The actuators can be dismantled, but I'd say it's better to get another one from a wreckers or whatever.
Aftermarkets can be fitted - there is a doco on this.
I've done both my cars and I can say it's a big improvement on the stock items.
