how do i remove the driver side door panel in ordre to replace the door lock actuator?
my driver side power door lock does not work and i had done the research, and i think it is caused by faulty door actuator.i have located the part at my local honda dealership for $41 plus tax but they want another $200 in labor to replace it. :evil:
i figure DIY FTW. :grin:
thanks

And here is the thread on the door lock actuator replacement:

I just did this a week ago - I found a new trick on re-installing the lock cylinder (C-clip thing) . . . I'll post some photos on that as soon as I get near the camera that contains them.

Be forewarned ! The actuator replacement requires removing the outer door handle assembly (even though you may convince yourself otherwise ;-) ). There really are no short-cuts :-(

I would also recommend having some plastic safe degreaser and lithium spray grease handy because once you get all the stuff out of the door, you're going to want to clean it all and re-lube everything.
