Practically every new member does not fully complete the registration form by including the year and model of their vehicle. Please click on USER CP to the left, then click on EDIT PROFILE, scroll down to ADDITIONAL INFORMATION and insert the year and model of your truck.

The door lock actuator has to be replaced and it is not a job for a novice. If you cannot remove the door panel you will have much greater difficulty with the actuator.

Do you have a pdf for the front door panel removal? I need to install sail panel tweeters and that would be a big help - might as well not go in blind...

It's really no different; the same set-up.

I was thinking that knowing the location of all the clips could help me avoid breaking more than I would otherwise...

It would also be a good idea to get a tool like this to pry out the christmas tree clips on the door panel.

My 1999 ML430 is doing the same thing on the driver side passenger door. I also cannot manually push the lock down. If the actuator is bad will it not allow you to push the lock down by hand? On my truck when you try to lock it, the knob bounces up and down as if something is blocking its travel? Any advice welcome, thanks.
