DOOR LOCK

2002 Jaguar XJ8

Electrical problem
2002 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 76000 miles

Passenger door lock is stuck in unlocked position. It will not respond to key, electronic signal, or manual pressure. When forced down, it will go half way and then return to unlocked position. Is this an actuator problem, and if so, how easy is it to fix or replace?
