Power doorlock actuator failure
Didn't see any mention of an actual lock actuator failure on here as of yet... so I'm adding mine. :) Driver's rear door lock actuator took a turn for the worse yesterday. Noticed the lock "stem" appeared lazy upon various lock/unlock cycles. Never heard any strange noises before the failure like the previous models would produce such as grinding, screeching, honking, etc.. Mine just straight up gave up the ghost.

The actuator is part of the latch assembly. List price on the one above mentioned wasn't bad ($60~). Install was CAKE! I did manage to snap a few photos, but was in a hurry so I didn't capture the moment.

I'll try and provide my experience with removal and replacement if I get a few minutes this evening. Total process too appx 30 minutes. All and all it went quite well considering I didn't have any documentation to follow. LOL

Locks on both of my back doors on my '11 WK2 do not work.

Did you take pics/ have description of your fixit job? $60 per door is alot better fix price than $800 I was quoted?!!

This is one of the reasons why I purchased the 7 year, 140000 km warranty with 0$ deductible! Any electrical issue or other problems and off to the dealer I go.
Enjoy your ride.

WK2 Rear Door Latch #4589923AF_4589922AF

Performed this repair quite some time ago. Have been through several smartphones since then. Pics are long gone unfortunately.

Re: Power doorlock actuator failure
I replaced my right rear actuator yesterday. my only surprise was I had to remove a vertical window guide rail in order to remove the unit. After that the biggest pain was the little clips that hold the outer door latch arm and door lock arm. After it was installed I couldn't get out of the car using that door. The child safety lock was on. I don't want any others to go bad but I'm ready. Also I picked up the unit through rock for $71 and change shipped.
