Default Door Lock Actuator

I need a replacement door lock actuator for the front drivers (left hand side) on a 2001 model year PT. I've searched this site for suggestions, but to no avail. I've searched the web, and I can find rear actuators, as well as some front passenger (right hand side) ones. I'm also not sure if there is any difference (changes) in the actuators from year to year, or if they were "all the same".

Anyway, not sure why no one seems to carry the drivers side, very odd? I was wondering if anyone had come up with a solution? Can the passenger side be modified to work on the drivers side? Is there a aftermarket one what will work? Will a "universal" door lock actuator work on a factory power lock (with modifications of course)? Has anyone come up with a good solution to this problem???

Thanks for any help anyone can offer....!

Thanks for the link, much appreciated. That might be where I end up going (more than likely less expensive than a dealership). However, I'm hoping to find a lower priced option, if possible. I also wonder if the actuator is the same as some other Chrysler/Dodge products... I'd have to think so? I'd be surprised if these were unique to the PT!

If i'm not mistaken the latch contains the actuator.

I'm really surprised that this "issue" hasn't popped up before. Haven't had a chance yet, but I'm planning on pulling the drivers door panel on my daughters PT and see what can be done. I'm just very surprised that the auto-parts stores don't seem to carry the drivers side, and when I've asked, nobody can give me a reasonable answer???

Will look in 04 project car today. That doesn't look familiar.

Not sure about this, but when doing part searches, it "appears" that the first year out models (2001) utilized a different actuator.

Again, not sure about that, but I'd be curious if it was true, why you could "NOT" use a later year actuator in a 2001 PT?

Will be interesting to see what the '04 actuator looks like.....

The actuator is made into the latch assembly. Looks nothing like the pic you showed. Will post a pic tonight after work. Not sure how from my phone.
