  2. The problem with my g5 power locks is that they only work the first time, and move like they want to unlock any time i try to lock or unlock after that. i figure its the lock actuators (both sides) but have read of ppl replacing them and having the same problem.. is it a fuse or electrical issue instead?

  3. I have done this twice and 1st time my car would not lock. So worked on it again today and still not able to get to work and noe door is locked shut and won't open. By any chances a visual. I know I watched the video n repeated steps but still no success.

  4. SUPER .. Super Vid, the actuators due very alot from Buick to Pontiac, recently did a re & re on a Buick, so this Vid will save me time as i need to do one on a 2007 Pontiac G6 … Thank You For The Vid.. Well Done – A 1 for me 1 A …
    Your establishment has many educational & very informative vids that i have watched prior to doing a job..
    so again, my hat goes off to 1 A Auto Parts..

  5. So my actuator is junk but the door is closed and won't open. Any suggestions to be able to get the door open to replace the actuator . It looks hard enough to do with the door open , probably impossible with it shut. Its a 2010 g-6

  6. My doors won't stop going off sounds like they are trying to lock but are unable to. I try to lock them they instantly unlock and they start going crazy whenever they want. Idk what to do or how to fix this.

  7. 06 grand prix; same door. video was hugely helpful. does the actuator need to be aligned to the striker in some way. have done the job twice, everything works properly till i put finishing touches. close the door and cannot reopen in any way!

  8. What is this for?
    Will this work for my situation with my G6…
    When we press lock on the left or right doors all doors lock except for the right one… Idk how to fix that please help

  9. Hi I need to replace the actuators for both of my rear doors on my 2008 Pontiac G6. Do you have or can you make a video on how to do this?  I have both of the replacement actuators just not sure how to replace them on the rear doors. Thanks

  10. My problem is with the rear door lock actuators on my 2009 Pontiac G6, is the actuator a universal part for all the doors or is it just door specific? I found this video very helpful because I have a guide on how to take apart my door and to not crack or miss anything. 

  11. I have that exact problem in your video. I went on your website but I can't find the replacement part. I have a '09 Pontiac G6. Is the part compatible from another model? 

  12. The door lock actuator may be bad. When the go bad, it usually gets a little tougher to lock and unlock them lock. 888-844-3393

  13. Hey quick question, have the 2009 Pontiac g6 and the rear passenger door lock is not working correctly. When i go to lock the door it moves the lock but only goes down half way, not enough to lock and so when I lock manually and try to open with the key fob, it doesn't want to open. You can see it move but it doesn't unlock. Any ideas?

  14. you may be able to get one from the dealer, or if you have a telescoping magnet, you should be able to get it out with that. Hope this helps you out. 888-844-3393

  15. When i tried to put in the torx screw for the door handle, it fell down into the door; is it possible that I can get replacement screws for them?
