I am tryin to fix my failing passenger's rear lock.
I have tried 3 different actuators
The wiring is ok as the lock will not come back up.
Sprayed WD-40 in there to loosen up the joints but it still seems like there is something holding it back.

Can anyone tell me how they fixed their issues, thanx.

So it locks but it wont open?.
You could try taking the motor out and seeing if it works both ways. It might be a bent arm to the motor? Or even the button on the door itself might be ****?.
WD40 worked for me:)

Is it hard to lift the button at all? Maybe something isn't right in the motor if it only goes one way?. Or even the arms that go to it might be bent or button might be stuffed?

I think i may have worked it out , b4 i owned the car a m8 had a prang in it and it was on that side , a new door skin and rear bar later it looks new, but i am thinkin it bend the rods or the mechanism.

Possibly, But if that was the case it probley wouldnt lock or unlock. Not just lock like urs is doing. Are you sure you havent just got a heap of dodgy actuators
