I'm assuming it's the door lock you're talking about. Yes you can do it. You need some tools. Hate to say it, but I've worked on so many cars & trucks I forget exactly what you'll need. 17 years of this & you can't remember all,lol. Well anyway,you need to remove the door panel . Put the window in the up positon. I forget if they were riveted in or bolted. If bolted they will be Torx,readily available tools are at most auto parts stores,sears,etc If riveted, then that maybe an issue. You need a drill,a punch that fits inside the center of the rivet,a hammer,& for re-install a hand riveter & rivets. To change the bolted kind, simply have the window up & door panel off, take the clip off the actuator rod, & I find it easier to unbolt the thing, then remove the wires.If it's riveted,take the punch & knock the center out . Drill the rivet out with a bit that is about twice the size of the hole in the rivet. You may need to wiggle the bit around until the rivet pops out. Install the new actuator using the new rivets & tool. You maybe able to simply use bolts instead,depending on clearance. Now it's up to you if you want to do it. I think you can!

2006 Ford Explorer Driver Side Door Locks not operating properly


Don't even think of doing it yyourself! Most likely your lock actuator is gone and needs to be replaced; taking the door panels of will most likely cause a few of the plastc clips, that hold that trim on, break and therefore you will have to replace those as well, if you can get them. Aside from that, there are quite a few wires in there, theu need to be properly disconnected and after the repair re-connected. A qualified garage is your best bet.....

Where is the driver side blend door actuator on a 98 Seville STS?


I believe that the right side has a blend door actuator, and the left side or driver side just gets air from the regular flow from the programmer and vacuum motors.

If you've replaced the actuators and they are working.
One of the blend doors may be broken inside the heater box. To repair or replace the broken door you
have to remove the heater box. This is not a small job. The book gives 6-7 hours for the job. There is a
cheat that I've heard good things about. I guess it can
be done in a fraction of the time. You can find out
about it at heatertreater.net I have not used it myself
but I know somone who has. And it worked well for
him. Hope this helps.
