thanks for the tip tenspeed, actually, i ordered the part from that website. the only problem is, ive practically torn the whole door apart and im still not finding it. i know its in there somewhere, just playin hard to get i suppose. im guessing it IS buried beneath the insulation sheet isnt it?

follow the wires...

yes, under the sheet.

Its literally inside the door on the corner. If u look on outside of door you will see a funny looking rivet.make sure your window is up also
