For the rear doors, the procedure to replace the lock actuator on a 2006 model is attached. Also attached is the exploded view of the rear door lock, and the procedure to remove the rear door trim panel. The tips for the actuator install on the front door of a 2005 model in post #1 may be helpful here too.

Good luck.

Attached is a document describing how to replace the door lock actuator on a 2005 model. The procedure is the same for all 2003 and up models. The 1998 thru 2002 models had a different way of attaching the arm rest control panel so be careful not to do damage.
A pdf version of this article is attached.

Door handle stuck in the "open" position, and will not return. Also will not open the door. Have to roll down window and pull outside door handle to open door. Will this procedure show replacement of door handle opening mechanism?

I've gone thru the tech posts on opening rear doors. My 09 LTC has no up-down old style lock. I am unable to get the door to unlock from inside or outside by manually pulling on the lock rod or the door handle rod. I have removed the actuator(by spreading the steel U-shaped holder) & separated the lock rod from the actuator. This did not accomplish the objective either.

I am stumped as to the next course of action and am open to any/all suggestions.

I've gone thru the tech posts on opening rear doors. My 09 LTC has no up-down old style lock. The fob/drivers door keypad/unlock switch driver's door are all ineffective. I am unable to get the door to unlock from inside or outside or by manually pulling on the lock rod or the door handle rod.

I have removed the actuator(by spreading the steel U-shaped holder) & separated the lock rod from the actuator, enabling free movement of all the attached rods. Still can't accomplish the objective. Suggestions are welcome.

The disconnected actuator is still electrically connected & will still move the white plastic when activated by the fob/drivers door keypad/unlock switch driver's door. Why will it not unlock the door?2009 RDoor Actuator.jpg
