Verylarry did you get some pictures of how you were able to do this?

This gave me room to see the actuator and see what I needed to do next. I then laid the passenger seat all the way down and back so that I could get right in there. After removing the power plug from the actuator,I was able to shock the actuator with 24v. I was not carful on this because 1. it was still a reach 2. I donít care about the old actuator and any last movement out of it could only help me. I heard a slight tick then plugged the cars power plug back in and... POP it opened. I was able to open the door and finish the job in a normal fashion.
I will try to post some pictures after I get them up to a host.
Thanks for sharing! Can you explain how you were able to pop the actuator to open the door? I have the same issue but on the rear drivers door.
Thanks again for the post!
