Power door lock doesnt work

All other door locks work fine but the rear passenger side lock does not work. It sort of makes like a machine gun noise but does not lock/unlock. How do I fix this? Will lubing the actuator work?

The power lock mechanism on these have this plastic gear setup and they crack. When it splits it just spins and makes that noise. You'll have replace the module, about $60 IIRC.

SOURCE: Rear door panel/actuators

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
