Whaaaa? I just replaced my door actuator yesterday. The part is $70.

The dealer wanted $450 and quoted the part at $150.

What an effing ripoff.

Getting the actuator out of the door is a pain in the ass!

Happened to me twice where the doors wouldn't open. Dukes of Hazzard style also.

First time dealer replaced a fuse and actuator. Then it happened months and months later. That time they replaced the fuse with a higher amperage one. It's been a couple years and it hasn't happened again.
