Hi Pete, yes they do wiggle and try to move into the lock position.

O.k.,this usually does indicate the lock actuator is the cause.They wiggle indicating they are trying to operate but are no longer strong enough to operate properly.The locks have to be replaced to correct this fault.To be sure once the door paneling is removed to access and replace these locks the linkage needs checked for any binding.But in most all cases the lock assemblies themselves have to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
