Default SC430 Door Lock Actuator Removal

I removed the middle panel on the door and have the door lock actuator loose, but I can't disconnect the actuator from the handle. Any tips on how to do that? I've been stuck for a while now. Thanks!

Nevermind, I just got it off. I disconnected the actuator's screws and pulled it out without taking the part that attaches to the handle with it. Hope that helps someone in the future.

EDIT: You have to remove the whole assembly, not just the actuator, to get it back in correctly. Check out youtube for lexus door handle removal videos. These are the two that helped me.


Once you get the handle out, everything will drop down inside the door and you can replace the actuator. Be really careful not to drop things inside the door or else you might end up jacking the car up on the other side and shaking the door with a magnet to get it out.
