Rear power door lock makes a stripped gear noise when locking.
You have to hold the lock button down so it will pull the stem down. Sometimes it does it when unlocking. Is this the actuator?

Yup. Sometimes the armature of the motor breaks free and spins on the shaft causing that sound. You might try adding a small dab of epoxy between the shaft and armature. I never tried that my self because I didn't want to risk failure or a repeat problem on a customer's car.
