I had a spare hour over the weekend to look at the passenger side actuator.... took the door apart, and it made no differance. It seems the actuator is stuffed - doesnt click or try to move at all.

Looks like 2 pot rivets holding the actuator in place.'Andone know how much a new one is? and if its hard to replace it yourself?

Cheers

for a price ring a wrecker ... to replace all you need to do is punch out the center of the rivet then use a 5mm(? IIRC) bit and drill the rest of the rivet out.

Replace with 5mm or 6mm nuts and bolts - use a nylon nut so it doesn't come undone.

Inside these babys are two diodes these can go open circuit or short circuit. When one of mine went short the systen continuously cycled. Very simple to check with a multimeter and replace with 1n4001 to 1n4007 at about 40 c each

yep well i got a front door actuator and a back door actuator wasting space in my room, so $15 each for working actuators with free postage is cheap as chips. Just tested them on my own car and they work a treat!
