Some useful info for anyone trying to sort out their door locks not working:
AISIN DLT088 Left Rear Lock Actuator 1 37.79 Left rear and hatch use same Rock Auto AISIN DLT088 Hatch Lock Actuator 1 37.79 Left rear and hatch use same Rock Auto AISIN DLT089 Right Rear Lock Actuator 1 37.79 - Rock Auto
Ordered these today, will report back once I get them installed. It's a real pain to source the motors these days and $38 for actuator for an AISIN part is worth a try in my book. I have already installed new motors in the actuators and they only lasted about a year before they failed again.
Note that the rear left door AND the hatch use the same part number That doesn't seem to be easy information to find, so I figured I'd post it here... hope it helps someone in the future.
Can confirm that these fit right on and work great. Identical molding markings on what came out, and i assume those were the originals.
One note for a anyone reading this... when you get these installed onto the lock assembly there is some adjustment that may need to be done by loosening the two screws that the actuators mount with. You need to make sure that it's adjusted such that the max and min of the actuator's "throw" lines up with the max and min of the lock movement in the linkage. Make sure you test them before you button everything back up, you may need to pull them out and adjust, you can't do it with them installed.
Also, the lock cylinder broke on my rear hatch... instead of buying an expensive new one, I fixed the one I had.
Back of the lock where the tab broke off, top right ish:
In the vice, I cut off the remaining portion and filed it flat, the hit it with a center punch for drilling. Note, this material is super SOFT so be very gentle with the file or you'll have to make a spacer so that the linkage clears the washer you'll need to install.
Drilled and tapping. I drilled all the way through into the first cavity. Be careful not to go beyond that. I used a #44 drill bit and a 4-40 tap (because it was the smallest my local hardware store had in terms of the right size drill, and fastener)
Here's the bolt installed before it's bath in the ultrasonic cleaner with the rest of the parts:
And here it is installed (photo is upside down). I ended up finding a smaller washer to use because this looked ugly... but all it needs to do is retain the linkage and if you were gentle filing, you don't need to worry about spacing. Make sure to use Loctite! I used Loctite 248, it's a solid and in a glue stick type form... it's great to use, no mess. and smells like fruit.
