Assuming you mean the lock actuator. Steps are below.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the door panel by removing the appropriate fasteners and wiring harnesses.
Detach the wiring harness from the door lock actuator.
Remove the fasteners and then remove the door lock actuator.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Thank bluelightnin6, I understand the process showed. Don't you have any picture or where can I find it. The Acura is my son new car and I never worked on it. Maurice from Québec City.

Sorry but where it is a Canadian model and I am U.S. Based, I can't find any more details other than just replacement steps. Here are some more detailed steps to removing the door panel though, maybe it will help a bit more. It's the biggest part of the job, the actuator itself just disconnect the wiring harness then unbolt a few fasteners and it will come out.

" " " There are screws securing that door panel. Two small philips screws behind the door handle - use a tiny flathead screwdriver to pry the cover plate off and get at them. Then open the door grip up using a panel popper (princess auto, canadian tire, costs like 8 bucks). There's a pair of philips screws there too, you have to reach in pretty deep to get them though. Then just grab the bottom edge of the plastic panel and pull outwards firmly. You'll hear the clips popping out one by one, till you get to the top, then you can lift the panel up and off the door.

Before you put the panel back, pull off the front sail panel triangle dealie (the one behind your side mirror mount, it's only held in with a single metal clip), THEN install the door panel. Then pop the sail panel triangle thing back on. &Quot; " "
