To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
i purchased this product to repair my door lock. the product fit fine however i had to wait two months before i could install. it is quite difficult to install. less than one month after i installed it, it stopped working.. the issue is that you must pull the entire facing off the door on this inside which is quite the job. now i get to do it again but will not purchase this product again. wj
Makes a horrible screaming sound when actuated. This appears to be cogs disengaging and skipping over each other. The actuator works but the noise is startling and I can't imagine it will last long.
The door mount for the actuator in the car presses hard on the actuator casing. Be warned, this seems to be designed to press all the cogs in the actuator together and stop them disengaging. Works on the original - no noise when mounted, screams when unmounted. The new actuator screams mounted or mounted!
Buyer beware... If I could give it zero stars I would. I bought this item in January 2015. By May, I was replacing it again. It is now July 2016 and it stopped working again. The actuator made a loud grinding sound when it did work. Poor quality, Save your money on this product and spend a few extra dollars to get the OEM part.
It won't let me leave 0 stars!!! NONE deserved here!
Bought 4, tried 2, both failed, 1 dead on arrival, didn't move at all, just made buzzing sounds, 2nd one worked 50% of the time, i didn't even attempt the other two. The pull push action was very rough on all 4 units. Just crap. Normally Doreman products are OK but these really shouldn't even be sold. You have been warned!
The product is the same as my oe 99 explorer door lock actuator the reason why I gave it 2 Stars is because there's no instructions in the Box the steel retaining ring to put the rod on is a royal pain in the ass and it's kind of sticky hopefully it will work its way in it does work I'll give a better review when it gets cold out hopefully it will work when it's cold out to unlock the door
