If you have a Saturn Aura or the similar Chevy models, you may know that the OEM auto door locks are garbage. They fail frequently and are brutally expensive to buy OEM replacement parts for. I was able to follow some awesome step by step instructions on the chevymalibuforum website to install two of these in the rear doors of a 2008 Saturn Aura. I was able to install both of them in about 3 hours and they seem to be working great. Fixed both doors for less than $25. OEM parts are over $200 each!

I got this actuator to cheaply fix one of my power door locks that hasn't worked right in probably 10 years. (Common problem with 2nd gen Chrysler LH body vehicles; the OEM actuator had a poor design utilizing a plastic gear that's easily stripped out.)

I was initially planning on hooking this actuator directly over the existing lock rod (not using the included rod and clamp), but I didn't realize that the top of this one was rotated 90 degrees from what I initially expected; pay attention to the picture! Installation ended up being a little tricky due to the lack of room inside my door, but I made it work. The motor is fairly strong, has absolutely no trouble with my lock. Everything is sealed up more than adequately to handle being inside a car door. All in all I think this is built pretty good.

It's worth noting that the installation hardware (screws, mounting bracket, etc) included isn't *exactly* as pictured currently; it instead matches the picture for the similar Install Essentials 524N High Power Door Lock Motor, so it's got the better/more flexible brass mounting bracket, 2 speed clips, 4 large mounting screws, color-coded wires (green and blue), rubber grommet/tube for passing wires through door hinges, and of course the rod that attaches to the new actuator plus the clamp to connect it to your existing rod. Seems like an improvement.

INSTALLATION TIPS:
- Use some blue threadlocker (Loctite) on the screws for the clamp, because if they loosen even slightly it'll stop working. Figure out exactly where you're going to position it first, then back the screws out (only one at a time) a turn or two and dab the threadlocker on.

I used these to save about $2000 on fixing the door lock actuators on an Infiniti FX45. Dealer wanted almost $500 per door, but I probably spent $50 bucks on four of these and some wire splicers and a couple hours of my time and they work better than the originals. Be aware though that these are generic actuators and ARE NOT factory actuators (at least for my Infiniti) and take a little creative engineering (drilling, cutting, etc.) to install them. If you want to use these on your vehicle, make sure you're comfortable being inventive or find online instructions (YouTube, Google, etc.) on how someone else did it.

Used a philips screwdriver and a drill. all the other parts came included. the directions were unimpressive but youtube helped. the youtube video for my car is for the rear doors and the difference came into effect when i realized that the actuator would have to be positioned vertically (instead of horizontally) in the front doors. placing the actuator as far down as possible to avoid the window and making it as vertical as possible is correct. i didn't actually do it correctly as i bent the rod and had the actuator slanted oh so slightly to fit in the bottom opening. time will punish me for this probably but in the end, the darn thing worked! the front driver door has a bundle of wires that contain the two correct ones that power the new actuator. the correct wires are larger than the other wires. green actuator wire is paired with blue with orange vein. the blue (sometimes purple) actuator wire is paired with yellow with green vein. as i suspected, putting the door panel back on was scary and did actually do some damage/ did not fit back perfectly, but with relief, functionally. the unlock button on my key worked as soon as the wires were connected, but the lock button did not actually work until i had reconnected the door panel! that was a good surprise since i had resigned myself to only being able to unlock my door with the power button. time will tell. did a happy dance today.

I was expecting simply an actuator and perhaps a few screws for the car models that this fits - but what I received was a pleasant surprise. This kit includes a bit of wire tubing, wiring and connectors, adjustable rod, mounting bracket, and additional hardware. Since I am trying to add a trunk-unlock actuator to a car that doesn't have one, this setup is perfect because it will allow me to improvise a bit around how to hook it up. I quickly hooked the actuator up to a 12v battery and it looks like it will do the job just fine. Very pleased.

After doing some research this model was chosen due to its reputation of providing more power to the latches than other available models. Also, this model comes with everything shown in the picture.

The 524T was installed as a replacement actuator for a previously installed but different model. This model and the other model had almost the exact same body and dimensionally they were the same. Therefore the existing holes worked perfectly. After installing the new unit I was thrilled at how well it performed. Honestly, the old actuator was never as powerful as this one.

This actuator is a little more expensive than other models out there, but if you are going to tear your vehicle apart to add power door locks spend the extra money and do it right the first time.
