hello

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Hey

danny :

Is it only the drivers door? if so its the lock actuator

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

is this a costly fix?

danny :

it has broken down in the locked position.

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

ok...

danny :

not to bad they will have to take the panel off.

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Can it be fixed at home?

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

I need this van so I can drive to and from school

danny :

i would recommend having a window tinting place do it. like a glass repair/ window tinting. it will be cheapest.

danny :

So you will have to use the passenger door til it gets fixed right?

danny :

or sliding door

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

yes

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Passengers' door.

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Around how much would a repair like this cost?

danny :

You would need a somewhat skilled person to replace this. I would say if you can replace rear brake drums you can do this.

danny :

anyone like tat you nopw

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Ok, my father can do that...

danny :

know

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

What will he need?

danny :

i will get him r and r for door panel and rand r for the lock actuator make sure it hasnt become unplugged.

danny :

brb with info

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

ok

danny :

click here for door panel. and i will get lock rand and r for you now.

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Ok...

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Also, how would he go about getting the door opened?... lol, I'm not that skilled when it comes to machines; I'm more of the law and crime kind of guy... haha

danny :

click here for lock

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Ok, so, this should make the door back to normal?

danny :

click here for glass. i dont have emergency opening procedures so a lock smith may need to be called. I will check to see if my site has info in thier library in the morning. i will send it if they have it even after accept.. i have sent rtequest for info already.

danny :

Thanks

danny :

if the key isnt working its the door lock actuator yes.

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

Thanks!

danny :

make sure it isnt half closed you know what I mean. close it all the way. maybe push in on it and see if it will unlock to free it up.

danny :

your very welcome

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

ok... so, now, what do i do to end the conversation?

JACUSTOMER-brxsf1f4- :

hit escape?
