Hi, all, I have one of those, front passenger side door. Here are the symptoms:

When I try to lock, it does the machine gun, waits a few seconds and does machine gun again.

Occasionally this process activates the alarm.

Is this really the door lock actuator, and if so is this a DIY ?

I read through posts and excellent pictures posted here earlier, but other than the MB wedge tool, what parts should I order ? Is the actuator same as regulator ? And I saw mention of white clips, would like to order some, but it will be easier with part number, and would my local dealer be the best source, or are there any online sources for these body parts.

thanks,

-Gopa

There is always a possibility that it's something else and without reading the codes there's no absolutes.

It is very likely your door locks and as to whether it's a DIY depends on your comfort with drilling out and reinstalling pop rivets. The rest is pretty straight forward and there are very detailed instructions with pictures already on the board.

I was at the Duval web site. There is no door lock actuator listed, is the 'Door Lock Assembly' the same thing ?

thanks,
