For most people, they don’t have any idea about how to repair actuator; while for some people, they know that power locks in a vehicle are conveniences most become used to without thinking about them. However, from time to time, these actuators will turn out stuck, among them most becoming ugly. At the same time, moisture can lead an otherwise functional electric actuators from moving the metal pinion controlling the lock as it should. Fortunately, the remedy is easy in most situations and probably in your garage.
Before we truly understand that the ways how to repair actuator, we should prepare the following things such as vehicle schematic drawing (optional), screwdrivers (Philips, Torx), spray lubricant household oil
Here are some instructions about how to repair actuator，I believe after that you will have a completely new idea about how to repair actuator, and then apply what you have learnt into the realistic situation.
Firstly, we should remove the panel of the door containing the lock that is broken, using the proper screwdrivers, and then ask a copy of the vehicle's schematic to find out the location of the screws that need removal, if necessary.
Secondly, we can gently loosen the plastic weather shield that covers the internals of the door. After that, we can remove the plastic and set it aside, and pay attention to not get the gummy surround adhesive on yourself or the vehicle's upholstery.
Thirdly, we need to grab the rod heading into the electric actuators. What’s more, the actuator is a white or black plastic housing with the rod which ties with the lock. After that, while locking and unlocking the door from the key fob or door limit switch , move the rod to give a hand to it, which is a vital procedure about how to repair actuator.
Fourthly, we can maintain the rod in its unlocked position after a few cycles. After that, we need to leak a great amount of silicone lubricant into the actuator and over the rod. At the same time, we should permit the lubricant to penetrate the actuator and rod for 10 to 15 minutes, and we should make sure that lubricants like this displace moisture and loosen contamination.
Fifthly, for most people who don’t know how to repair actuator, we should put the tongue of the oil applicator into the end of the actuator, and then pump two or three drops into the end of the actuator. What’s more, we can let this stand for a few minutes to permit penetration.
Sixthly, we can lock and unlock the door several times to make sure appropriate coverage of the applied lubricants. At the same time, we should return the panel and trim, after you are satisfied with the application of the lock and actuator. After learning how to repair actuator, we can apply our knowledge into reality.
