Yes. It’s unfortunately a pain to get the unit out but it just takes fiddling with it. There’s good videos on getting it out but none on fixing the problem if it’s not the outside circular spring. I just replaced the plastic clip inside the actuator and now have to put the video up on it so no one has the problem I did figuring out how to get to and fix the innards with no video to turn to. Call me if you’re going to do it before I get the video edited and posted and I’ll walk you through it. 661-965-6305.

Do these things commonly go? I have an 04 ml500 with the rear driver side actuator is malfunctioning.
Here's the other fix (repair kit) for the common issue.

Yep, that’s one of the many videos on the easy exterior one. I’m taking about the inside plastic clip that breaks.
And there is also a video for that one too, from years past.

I couldn’t find a single video on the inside clips. That’s why I took the time to make a video of how I did it; so others didn’t go crazy like I did! Let me see if I can post part of it here.

Rear isn't too bad. I didn't have to remove the airbag on my 01 as I was able to slide the wires (door pull and lock) behind it. Getting the old out and new in is a little tricky but long, narrow arms help.

If you look closely, there’s a bevel on the gear side that fits into to the assembly. When you open the case, remove the gear turning it over to see the post and the tab on the underside. What’s left is the part you need to change. Lift it straight up and note which side the bevel is on. Replace with the appropriate one. When you reassemble, the tab goes into the lower “body” of the plastic part you just replaced that resembles a “t” shirt.
