Question Advice for Rear Door Lock Actuator Replacement on an '08 Dodge?

Both my rear door lock actuators have gone TU, and I'm looking for pointers on their replacement.

I see a big Philips screw in the center of the door panel, and a Torx (?) screw that appears to secure the door handle to its mechanism, but those are all the clues I have at this point to door panel removal. I have also noted two Allen-head screws securing the actuator to the door proper. Anything I'm missing here?

Also, can these actuators be rehabbed? $110 for the both ain't all that pricey, but I'm so broke I can't pay attention.

Any help appreciated.

Well for starters, what kind of Dodge it is.

Have you searched on youtube for a video? Lots of them out there.

You can buy aftermarket ones a lot cheaper than that. Any place that does car alarms will have them or online. I used to put them in cars all the time and add keyless entry modules.

As far as getting dodge door panels off. You almost have to have a forked panel tool to get it off without destroying all the fasteners. And you'll still end up trashing many of them. Dodge door panels suck!

Almost have to have a panel removal tool? Next you're going to tell me that I almost have to have a wrench to remove a hex bolt
