Sounds like a linkage issue. You have to remove the rear lift panel to get to it........http://www.ehow.com/video_4941937_remove-door-skin.html?wa%5Fvlsrc=continuous&pid=1&wa%5Fvrid=d3619092%2D7ea3%2D47d5%2D89ed%2Df218ade04488&cp=1......if needed, see other video link. http://www.ehow.com/video_4941938_power-door-lock-actuator-removal.html

OK thanks. After viewing the videos I realized that it's not the actuator that needs replacement it's the actual lock assembly. Can you help with that.
