August 26, 2010Can anybody tell me if the door lock actuators are interchangeable? My tailgate lock went out and I`m trying to replace it. I tried to clean and repair the lock by taking it apart, but a retired Marine doesn`t have the patience, so that ended up aa a crushed mess on my work bench. The truck is twelve years old, so I got a good run out of the stock part. Any idea if I can substitute a drivers door lock actuator on the tailgate? I googled and googled. I got nothin!!!! Help me out my Ford Forum brothers/sisters. Thanks!!

August 26, 2010BIgtruck, I do not believe that the rear door and 4 main doors are interchangeable. I know the front and rear doors are not interchangeable. So, I would do some looking around and see what sort of deals you can get. If you need some help, let me know.

September 10, 2010www.autozone.com ... they have all the actuators in stock for our expeditions... i replaced all of mine. and the actuator on the back hatch has a different mount then the doors do. i think the actuator is $100 but well worth it. ive had my duralast actuators in my truck for over a couple years, without any problems. esp with the -20 weather we get here in Anchorage, Alaska. (during the winter that is)
