Passenger Rear Door Wont Lock (Machine Gunning?)

So out of the blue, My passenger rear door is not locking any more. When I lock the doors all 3 doors lock just dandy but the passenger rear door won't go down. I hear 3-4 little clicks trying to make it go down, then it knows its not down and 3-4 clicks again. Still not locked. (Is this "Machine Gunning"?)

You can see the little plastic up/down bit is not sitting straight up like the rest. I don't wanna say its broken off but bent? Or it could be broken off inside- Not quite sure!

Any advice? Any help? Please?

And If any body would have some instructions as to Removing the rear passenger door panel, that would be awesome.

Thanks

Hey man, same thing happened to me before...your "Door Lock Actuator" is broken....
There is no other option than to replace it! There is a cheap motor inside the actuator that just gives out...Best of luck

Ok, well thats something. How did you replace it? Where did you get a new actuator and how do you remove the panel?

Thanks a lot bro

is it possible something is caught up inside the latch or something is stuck? It doesnt seem like the actuator is bad because its trying to lock, Its making the noises but its just not happening. And also since the plastic bit is not straight up like the rest im thinking something is caught inside and its off center or something...

FML.

Any other links or advice?

Thanks

Also I found this

What you found was the actuator to lock and unlock the fuel door.
