Marco replaced all 4 of my door lock actuators and did a wonderful job! Now they are strong and quick. He traveled to my home (for a very reasonable fee) and was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. He even answered unrelated questions about the car. And all for thousands less than the Lexus dealership quoted. For anyone in southern California, I highly recommend Marco!

Thanks to this thread, I was able to switch out the 4 non working mabuchi motors in my 01 GS3. Next step is to tackle my 98. Thanks you forum and all those who contributed.

So I replaced all 4

Only the passenger door makes a LOUD noise when it locks? Where as every other actuators are silent?

Yeah! But only the motor inside the actuator. You can get all 4 of them for about $20 on eBay! Also I'd recommend you to replace all 4 motor since you're at it, the other 3 will soon follow.

Just bought a couple of motors. Does the post need to be shaved flat, or will my original gear just slip on?
Thanks,
