From the manufacturer

Don’t sacrifice safety with a cheap replacement door lock actuator.

Differences Between IDLAs and DLAs

Integrated door lock actuators contain complex electronics that integrate a complete door latch assembly, including the lock and unlock mechanism, into the actuator. Standard door lock actuator are mechanical components connected by a series of rods and cables to the door lock mechanism to lock or unlock the vehicle door.

Dorman delivers higher quality, more reliable solutions that are thoroughly tested and built for safety.

DLA and newer integrated door lock actuator (IDLA) designs are critical components that should pass strict Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and perform properly over the long term.

  • In Dorman testing, competitor actuators have failed after just 700 test cycles – or roughly just six months of simulated use.
  • Dorman actuators are tested up to 20,000 cycles – equal to 15 years of use.

  • Common failure modes include electrical burn out or excessive wear to internal mechanical components


Benchmark tested up to 20,000 cycles


Temperature tested to ensure internal components last


Tensile tested to ensure strength of components

Description

This door lock actuator has undergone extensive quality and safety testing to ensure reliable performance. It is engineered to provide a direct replacement for the stock actuator on specific vehicle years, makes and models.

The actuator came in overnight which was a very pleasant surprise when ordering.
Installed on a 2005 Chevrolet Astro Van passenger door.
As some pointed out the mounting bracket is not installed on the actuator as it is set to be universal to the door being installed. To me this is ingenious as this cuts down on product sitting on a shelf somewhere.
Yes you must remove four nuts and four screws, I myself did not find this to be an inconvenience as other have. If you don''t wish to deal with this you can pay more money for the AC Delco unit.
And yes the original actuators are installed with rivets at the factory, simply drill the center out with a quality metal bit, nothing from Harbor Freight though. This will definitely save your door from damaging the door by using an air chisel.
For mounting I read in reviews the mounting holes did not align for an Astro van, turn the bracket around as it''s supposed to mounted on the actuator and the holes will align perfectly.
I did the driver''s side last year and found that using a 1/4" x 1/2" aluminum rivet is the perfect size for mounting with no issues of being loose.
I was also surprised to find that included with the actuator were tabs to mount with screws which AC Delco does not.
I just installed this unit about an hour ago, it works perfectly. Solved my issue of the doors not fully locking or unlocking with the switch.
I did find that the door handle and locking arms were overlapped behind the arm rest mount. Bending these into the proper position solved the stiffness experienced when unlocking the door with the key.
This however was not the root cause of the door switch not unlocking and locking the door.
I did not provide a rating for longevity as I just purchased and installed it. Overall I think the product is very good and worth the spend as once I reassembled the door the lock seemed to work much better than it ever has.
I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone.

I installed the Dorman 746-014 Door Lock Actuator in a 1985 Chevy Camaro. The original drivers door actuator was failing so I replaced the driver''s door actuator while also installing that Crimestopper SP-402. I transferred the Camaro''s original mounting bracket to this Dorman actuator. The rivets that came with the Dorman actuator were too small and short to fit the holes in the Camaro. Luckily, I have a good supply of rivets and spacers to work with. I found a good combination of rivets and spacers and got the Dorman mounted up strong. I used steel wool to polish up the door lock rods and after a good cleaning and lubricating with lithium grease all is working smoothly again.

Install wasn''t too bad, if you have a Rivet Gun and nimble hands it should only take about 20 minutes per door, I had to remove the brackets from my original Actuators - as others have noted - but aside from that, the install was easy.

I bought three of these for my 1999 Tahoe, two for my Front doors and one for my rear barn door, the rear passenger doors were still working fine.

The Stock Barn Door Rivets were a lot bigger than the Rivets that came with the unit, the provided rivets were too small for the holes in the doors. I went to Home Depot and they didnt have the right size rivets either, so I bought Galvanized Bolts and Wing Nuts to fit the holes in the door. Wing nuts made it easier to get the threads started in such a tight spot.

The rivets were the right size for the other doors in the truck, so it seems that just the rear Barn Doors require a bigger rivet or Nut and Bolt of your preference if thats what you need it for.

All in all I am satisfied, its great having my doors lock and unlock as intended again.

Mount did not even come close to fitting stock location on my truck door. Unable to use factory original mount in place of the mount it came with. C-clips provided would not accept factory mounting bolts. Mounting bracket provided did not match the angles of factory mount, therefore, it would not line up correctly without putting bends in the mount provided. It was not a direct fit. It did not fit in my ''84 Blazer as advertised. My issue is in no way with the seller of this product, the problem is with Dorman, which made the product, and claims "direct fit". Seller shipped fast, and the cost was very reasonable.

I replaced both front door actuators on my Astro. One had obviously been replaced before, the other seemed to be OEM. I used the nut plates supplied (slip over sheet metal nut plates), as the supplied pop rivets were too small to be useful.

They caused the actuator to block the window regulator. Bad.

I had to use nut/bolt/washer combination. As well as pull the door panel out away from the window (in the actuator mounting area). Use an over sized heavy washer on the interior (of the van) side of the door; use a same sized or smaller washer on the inside [of the door cavity]. Tighten the nut up until you have flattened the metal out. Pull on the end of the botl with Vise grips a couple of times (a bit like a slide hammer) until you have a flatter area. Test until it works.

Worked for driver''s side 2000 GMC Safari. Very difficult to replace without special tools.Included installation hardware insufficient for task.

The old actuator is pop-riveted in place and needs to be chiseled or cut free with an angle grinder or something similar. Do not attempt this replacement unless you have access to good tools.

The new actuator comes with a mounting bracket that can be used to install it on either the driver''s or the passenger''s side door, but the actuator needs to be partially disassembled to mount the bracket. Additionally, the kit comes with pop-rivets that are not large enough to attach the bracket to the door hardware.

Thankfully, the bracket comes with metric-threaded frame nuts. Three minutes at my local Ace Hardware and $3 got me a pair of stainless steel screws and washers that hold the actuator in place much better than any pop rivet could have.

Worked perfectly on my 2000 Tahoe Limited barn door. Like other reviews say, you do have to put the original mounting bracket on because what comes with this actuator won’t work. Not sure why they even send it but taking the old one off and putting it on is simple. The whole job took about 20-30 minutes because I had to grind the rivets off to remove the old one. I also read in other reviews that the rivets they send are too small but since I don’t have a rivet gun, I just used either 3/16” or 1/4” bolts and nuts. No more needing the key to unlock the barn doors!! 😃

I installed two of this part number on a 2001 Safari SLT 7 passenger van myself. One on the passenger door the other on the drivers door.

They look great and fit perfect. When I tested them they were extreamly noisy slamming the rod to lock and unlock the doors. Checked my work and didnt find anything out of place to cause the excessive noise Buttoned the door panel up with all new fastteners and went on with life.

Just about a year later the lock motor on the drivers door quit working would not so much as click. You could not even use the manual inside lock button or the key to unlock or lock the door everything was frozen. My wife was going to an out of state water park and asked me to at least get the door to lock manually for her. I removed the door panel and had to remove the linkage to get the door lock to work manually for me. I removed the lock motor and found it to be seized up and no part of it would move. Not going to install another Dorman product because of the short life span of the one motor I ordered a VDO brand replacement. Before I got the replacement installed the passenger door lock motor started making a loud noise and would not move the lock. I ordered Delco brand lock motor for it fearing that the VDO brand might not be as good as a OEM unit. When the new parts came in the Delco part was labeled VDO so long story short I am running two VDO door motors in the van. I will let you know how they work as at this time they are quiet and working well.
Update 4/4/15, VDO units are still doing fine.

FYI the passenger side motor had the gears stripped out on the plunger. The drivers door motor had a seized motor.

7/24/13 The VDO lock motors are still working like new.

Install wasn''t too bad, if you have a Rivet Gun and nimble hands it should only take about 20 minutes per door, I had to remove the brackets from my original Actuators - as others have noted - but aside from that, the install was easy.

I bought three of these for my 1999 Tahoe, two for my Front doors and one for my rear barn door, the rear passenger doors were still working fine.

The Stock Barn Door Rivets were a lot bigger than the Rivets that came with the unit, the provided rivets were too small for the holes in the doors. I went to Home Depot and they didnt have the right size rivets either, so I bought Galvanized Bolts and Wing Nuts to fit the holes in the door. Wing nuts made it easier to get the threads started in such a tight spot.

The rivets were the right size for the other doors in the truck, so it seems that just the rear Barn Doors require a bigger rivet or Nut and Bolt of your preference if thats what you need it for.

All in all I am satisfied, its great having my doors lock and unlock as intended again.

Mount did not even come close to fitting stock location on my truck door. Unable to use factory original mount in place of the mount it came with. C-clips provided would not accept factory mounting bolts. Mounting bracket provided did not match the angles of factory mount, therefore, it would not line up correctly without putting bends in the mount provided. It was not a direct fit. It did not fit in my ''84 Blazer as advertised. My issue is in no way with the seller of this product, the problem is with Dorman, which made the product, and claims "direct fit". Seller shipped fast, and the cost was very reasonable.

Not a good fit for Astro.

I replaced both front door actuators on my Astro. One had obviously been replaced before, the other seemed to be OEM. I used the nut plates supplied (slip over sheet metal nut plates), as the supplied pop rivets were too small to be useful.

They caused the actuator to block the window regulator. Bad.

I had to use nut/bolt/washer combination. As well as pull the door panel out away from the window (in the actuator mounting area). Use an over sized heavy washer on the interior (of the van) side of the door; use a same sized or smaller washer on the inside [of the door cavity]. Tighten the nut up until you have flattened the metal out. Pull on the end of the botl with Vise grips a couple of times (a bit like a slide hammer) until you have a flatter area. Test until it works.

Worked for driver''s side 2000 GMC Safari. Very difficult to replace without special tools.Included installation hardware insufficient for task.

The old actuator is pop-riveted in place and needs to be chiseled or cut free with an angle grinder or something similar. Do not attempt this replacement unless you have access to good tools.

The new actuator comes with a mounting bracket that can be used to install it on either the driver''s or the passenger''s side door, but the actuator needs to be partially disassembled to mount the bracket. Additionally, the kit comes with pop-rivets that are not large enough to attach the bracket to the door hardware.

Thankfully, the bracket comes with metric-threaded frame nuts. Three minutes at my local Ace Hardware and $3 got me a pair of stainless steel screws and washers that hold the actuator in place much better than any pop rivet could have.

Worked perfectly on my 2000 Tahoe Limited barn door. Like other reviews say, you do have to put the original mounting bracket on because what comes with this actuator won’t work. Not sure why they even send it but taking the old one off and putting it on is simple. The whole job took about 20-30 minutes because I had to grind the rivets off to remove the old one. I also read in other reviews that the rivets they send are too small but since I don’t have a rivet gun, I just used either 3/16” or 1/4” bolts and nuts. No more needing the key to unlock the barn doors!! 😃

I installed two of this part number on a 2001 Safari SLT 7 passenger van myself. One on the passenger door the other on the drivers door.

They look great and fit perfect. When I tested them they were extreamly noisy slamming the rod to lock and unlock the doors. Checked my work and didnt find anything out of place to cause the excessive noise Buttoned the door panel up with all new fastteners and went on with life.

Just about a year later the lock motor on the drivers door quit working would not so much as click. You could not even use the manual inside lock button or the key to unlock or lock the door everything was frozen. My wife was going to an out of state water park and asked me to at least get the door to lock manually for her. I removed the door panel and had to remove the linkage to get the door lock to work manually for me. I removed the lock motor and found it to be seized up and no part of it would move. Not going to install another Dorman product because of the short life span of the one motor I ordered a VDO brand replacement. Before I got the replacement installed the passenger door lock motor started making a loud noise and would not move the lock. I ordered Delco brand lock motor for it fearing that the VDO brand might not be as good as a OEM unit. When the new parts came in the Delco part was labeled VDO so long story short I am running two VDO door motors in the van. I will let you know how they work as at this time they are quiet and working well.
Update 4/4/15, VDO units are still doing fine.

FYI the passenger side motor had the gears stripped out on the plunger. The drivers door motor had a seized motor.

7/24/13 The VDO lock motors are still working like new.

Used this actuator to repair the lock on the driver''s side door of my 2003 Chevy Astro. The repair was fairly easy and the part fit perfectly. Only required removing the inside door handle/panel, removing a few rivets on the old actuator, connecting the power to the new actuator (just plug in), and re-attaching it with some new rivets!
