Product Description

So your key won't turn in the door, the lock knob won't push down, & nothing happens when you push the lock button? Well, it sounds like you need to replace that bunk door lock actuator! Don't worry door lock actuator failure is a common occurrence in 79-93 Mustangs.

Actuator Failure
There are a few ways to determine if your Mustang's door lock actuator has stopped working. The first way is that the key still works in the door but nothing happens when you hit the unlock button. Or key won't even turn in the door, the door lock knob is frozen in the unlock position & nothing happens when you hit the switch.

Actuator is too weak to lock or unlock the door without manual assistance. Really don't want to disassemble the door again to remove and return it. After I had purchased the product and installed I had read other reviews all with the same problem. LRS really should find a new manufacture for this product.
From LatemodelRestoration.com: The actuators are very "tight" for the first several cycles. They do start to "beak-in" and will function normally after 10-12 cycles.

Perfect fit and works well. Just make sure that you clean and lubricate the lock mechanism in the door jamb while you are at it for smooth operation. Also be prepared to do the other door as LRS mentions.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
