I just received my actuator for the passenger side sliding door. Had no problem removing the panel. I also removed a few of the screws on the inner metal black bracket. Was able to squeeze my hand to reach the screws for the actuator but it seems they are stripped. I can't unscrew them Its only 2 screws but am not having any luck. Any ideas?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

Are you referring to the sliding door motor? Also, when you say they are stripped, are you referring to the threads or the bolt head?

I am going to provide the directions related to everything in the rear door. The attached pics will correlate with the directions. Take a look through it to see if there is something that will help. Don't be overwhelmed with these directions. It is for everything. Look for the sections needed. Note there are four parts to these directions. If you look at the first 4 pictures below, it shows all the different parts each section refers to. If you don't see what you need in these directions, look at the first 4 pics, identify what section you need, and let me know.

Yes, I was able to do all this successfully but the screws holding the actuator motor for the button in the vehicle to open the door are stripped. The Phillips head just doesn't grab because it's stripped. Also? I learned that those screws were put in with loctite glue so that's why they don't turn.

Hi,

Loctite prevents them from coming loose. However, you shouldn't have a problem removing them. How much access to you have to the screws which are stripped? I might suggest getting an impact screwdriver if there is room. Basically, you put the tool on the screw head and then hit the tool with a hammer. The tool then turns the screw the same time it is being pushed into it. The pressure from the hammer hitting it both jars the screw and keeps it from stripping. I attached a picture of one. Let me know if you have enough room to use one.
