Glad all went well Jeff. Hate working dayshift because of all the Drama, and they are changing our job description for swing shift. Don't know which is worse, drama and less work, or more work but less drama.

Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

I can't seem to find another thread that deals with this so I am just going to plunk it here and hope I don't get in trouble. I called the local dealer here yesterday to see about getting a door actuator replaced. I was quoted close to $600, including $260 for the part. Every dealer web site I look at shows the actuator as having a list price of $135-ish and a discounted price of $90-$100. I called the service manager back and he came down to $210 on the part. Has anyone else run into a dealer marking their parts up above the list price?

Iím pretty set on keeping it stock so Iíll be ordering from a discount dealer. It just really rubbed me the wrong way that they were charging more than list price. I think dealers are making way more on repairs nowadays than they are on new car sales.

I like SparksTRD. They are a dealership in Myrtle Beach. My local dealer won't even match their prices.

Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

I feel like I am stuck in a rabbit hole. :-(. I have spent the last half hour searching for an answer to a question with no luck. The last guy who asked the same question was given a link. I followed that link... it didn’t answer his question. I have a college degree and successfully navigate other web forums with no trouble... why is this one so difficult? My immediate question... why can’t I post in the Forums? I am past 15 posts, I thought that was the hurdle? I cleared my web cache. My ultimate question, which will probably get me reprimanded for asking it here.... my passenger side door won’t unlock. I’m sure it will be easy to fix once I get the door panel off... but I can’t get the door panel off with the door closed. Anyone who can help me with either my posting question or my door panel question will be my new hero!

Iím with you on the forum post thing. Canít make my own threads or anything anymore as well. I was told to PM one of the mods but that never went anywhere.

As far as the door question goes, I think its safe to say that the manual door lock doesnít work either? That would have been my suggestion.

Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

Believe me, I've tried every combination of lock knobs, handles and key fobs, nothing works.

I would have posted the post question in the web issues forum but the last time I used that it took close to a week to get a response. With one door dead, a week is an awfully long time. I’m a bit disheartened to hear you have thee same problem since you have over 150 posts.

---------- Post added 11-17-2018 at 05:47 PM ----------

....and am I the only one who sees the irony in the fact that I can’t post a message in the web site support forum about not being able to post - because I can’t post! :-)

Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

When you hit the unlock does the passenger door make a noise like actuator is trying or is it dead?

When I hit the unlock button, the actuator makes a noise and the knob goes about half way up. Same if I pull the knob up manually... it goes half way up and stops. The inside latch handle will stay out if I pull that; I have to push it back in. The outside handle seems to function normally.

I had the same thing happen before I changed mine, got off Ebay $36, I had to keep pulling up while hitting the unlock over and over until it opened
