Default Door lock actuator?

Did all Lexus models made around 2001 use the same door lock actuators? What about Toyota's?

Thank you. I am hoping to head to Pick n Pull in the next few days for door lock actuators. Now I need the front passenger and rear drivers side. If I have time I think I will just get them all for future.

I would advise against pick and pull as a source for door lock actuators. These parts get over used .. lock-unlock-lock-unnlock and wear out. Granted it can depend upon the programming .. driver only or all doors. And the aggravation to fix every time a failure happens is too much [imho]. Also the clips/fasteners/even-the-door-panel gets weak under stress of opening.

There is lot more effort .. replace the motor
or
recently fully assembled but cheap aftermarket.

I would replace the motor or the part and be done for another 10 years or so.

I agree that the odds of getting anything reliable that is electrical from Pick n Pull is slim. My plan is to get the actuators and open them then clean the contacts and replace the motors. OEM actuators are very expensive and the inexpensive after market ones usually don't work. I bought 5 total after market ones and had only one good one out of the bunch.

I just had my rear passenger actuator go out (2000 RX300 wasn’t locking/unlocking) and was able to find a pick-in-pull with a fresh vehicle on the lot. So I grabbed two complete rears with handle mechanism for $8.99 ea. I went in thinking that I would just replace the white actuator assembly from the handle connections. When it looked too tedious I just decided to replace the whole door handle with actuator assembly and found it was quite simple, and worked perfect.

Unfortunately most yards don’t offer cash refunds, only credit for a defective/wrong part, but at $8.99 for functioning OEM I’m satisfied.

Using this list I looked at other models on Rock Auto and found all of the actuators. If you look only at RX300 it only shows the drivers door but looking at other models they are all there. The only question is that some look identical but have a different part number so I will need to get some clarity about that.

If you look at the other posts, the real answer is to just change the little motor inside the actuator.

Around $5 each on ebay and will only take you an extra 5 min. vs. changing the entire actuator.
