bought actuators a few weeks ago and was a little disappointed weak they were. I thought it might be the connection but I tested it directly from battery and there was no difference.

4 Stars   Very thorough kit!
By on 3/31/2015
I recently purchased this actuator kit to repair the passenger side lock motor on my 89 Mustang Convertible GT 5.0. The kits honestly comes with everything part needed and a handy tool to assist with removing the door panels. The installation is fairly simple taking about thirty minutes to fully complete. I recommend watching the video, it is very helpful. 4 stars is for the overall product. I would give 5, but one of the door actuators I received appears to be weak in operation. It will function, but sometimes it takes a couple presses of the lock/unlock button and its really slow compared to factory. I decided not to swap the driver side working actuator after seeing the difference in function. On the other hand I would like to give 10 stars to Latemodel Restoration customer service. When I called to inquire about these units maybe being defective or weak, they were very helpful with resolution. Please be advised that instillation will require the use of a large rivet gun capable of receiving 1/4 inch rivets. Your average one found at local stores will not do this. I traveled all over town because I thought the gun I had would work. Save yourself some time, headache, and order it here, the price is the cheapest anywhere I could find and it is necessary for the door locks and other repairs on the car.

Bought two lock actuators about 3 months ago. Door locks went from frozen to extremely stiff. Locks wouldn't actuate with buttons unless I held them down. I went back in, disconnected the actuators, lock mechanism works effortlessly. Actuators are very stiff even to move in and out by hand. Would accept one could be defective, but both? Save your money, disconnect your bad locks and lean over to lock/unlock the passenger door...
From LatemodelRestoration.com®: We apologize that you had problems with the door lock actuators. Please expect a call from a customer service representative shortly on the matter.

These are a PITA to install… Make sure you have half a day! The rivet gun is a must! These rivets are big and most guns don't have the tip to install them! When installed I recommend white lithium spray to lube all of the lock and door mechanics! Hit the power lock up & down a few times to make sure it works properly before reinstalling door panel! Mine didn't but after lube and few pokes on the button it worked like new! Good luck!

4 Stars   Affordable
By on 4/18/2015
This is a decent kit. The included tool could be made much better as it is angled too much, not allowing the tool to fully reach under the plastic push pin before pulling the door panel away from the door. I used a similar tool, but with a flatter profile sold by Snap-on which worked much better for removing the push pins from the door without damaging the cardboard door panels. Regarding the online video, it is better to remove the two Phillips head screws that retain the power window and door lock switches to the armrest, than to try and unplug the armrest harness from the door harness. With the switches still connected, you will be able to test your new door lock motors after they are installed before reassembling any door parts. And you will not risk damaging the brittle plastic electrical connector clips that hold the electrical connectors together. Also, with the switches attached the power windows can be easily lowered for removal and replacement of the door panels and raised for replacement of the lock motors. Contrary to the video, I also recommend using pliers for pushing the rollpin through the lock motor rod rather than hammering the pin in. By using a hammer you risk cocking the pin or folding it over. A hammer is just overkill and pliers will easily and smoothly push the pin in place. These aftermarket lock motors seem adequate for the job, but do appear to have lower torque than the original Ford lock motors. These lock motors will not be able to overcome low battery voltage or stiff linkage if you have those problems. The replacement push pins are absolutely necessary for anyone removing door panels with 25-year old push pins as the old pins will be absolutely useless for reattaching the door panels.

3 Stars   Nice kit
By on 8/15/2014
Nice kit, great price. Removal tool is great to have allowing you to pull panel without damaging it. The kit comes with replacement push pins in case you damage the originals upon removal.

The actuators are made identical as originals, and video is spot on about installation, but both failed to lock or unlock door. It's not that these in particular aren't working, there's current going through both units and spin the arm but once inserted into the door mechanism, they appear to be too weak to lock/unlock door. Kinda disappointed.

4 Stars   Super simple kit, but needed help to rivet
By on 10/19/2014
I've replaced quite a few of these in foxes and SN-95's. They are super simple to remove and install but the rivet gun required for installation sucks and is almost impossible to use. So far the LMR actuators are the best available IMO. Nice that this kit comes with the door panel clips and tool also. I wish the actuator could be made into a bolt in kit. Of all the great technology we have in Mustang's, why can't we have a bolt in actuator?

Image uploaded by Christian M. First time installing lock actuators. I bought these because my locks where totally destroyed when I bought the car and now that it is winter they would freeze shut. I actually got locked inside my car haha. I put these babies in and they work like a charm no more freezing. I do suggest disconnecting your battery while installing these though I did not and my battery died from having the doors open.

I bought the door lock actuator kit for my 1990 mustang. It didn't take long to get them and my husband put them in. They work great it is nice to have door locks that work. The price was a lot better than other places I seen & cheaper than taking the car in someplace to have them installed.

4 Stars   works well, but you have to 'break' them in
By on 4/22/2015
I finally got around to getting these in. Overall y fit well and the install video was very helpful. The only Things to look out for are the units need to be cycled alot (maybe 50 tines) and I had to lubricate the mechanism inside the door.
Worth the money.

This is the second set I have had to buy within the last 3 years. The first set worked for about 6 months before quiting, this set works, because they are new, but only when they are outside of the door. I cant get them to work inside when they are connected to the door lock system.
