Sliding Door Lock broken
Approximate cost to repair?
Ive had this done recently. bought the part for $50 on ebay, labor was $650. I hired a really really good mechanic who had never done this specific repair before. it took him 5-6 hours. he could not remove the door all the way so he removed the back hinge and propped the door so he could work on it. he had to remove practically everything from the inside of the door before he got to the part. then put everything back in it. i was afraid he was accidentally going to break something the whole time. He complained about how hard it was the whole time. fortunately it works perfectly now, but there are some scratches on the window. not sure if that could have been avoided or not. if i could do it again i would have had the dealer do it.
I had a similar issue (I couldn't lock or unlock the door) and ultimately just had to order the actuator to replace for like $50. You can do it yourself if you feel comfortable taking the door panel apart (be careful of the window because I unwound it on accident and it was a pain to fix) or you could pay for a mechanic to do it for probably about what others were quotes ($650-$1000)
