DOOR LOCKS

2008 Chevrolet Malibu • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 71,500 miles

I have a 2008 chevy malibu that has door locking/unlocking problems. When I press the lock button it only locks the right rear door. Same with the unlock. The problem is the same using the key-fob. Thats today, sometimes this changes where none of the locks work properley.
I was told it is the lock actuator. Is there one on every door? Please help!

Yes there is. Remove the panel. Youll see the actuator assys. You may be able to lube the lock linkage with penatrating oil to repair.
