Default Re: my door locks are making a noise

I moved you over to the TECH section for a better response.

Sounds to me like the actuator on the drivers door needs fixing or replacing. Is the noise (squealing) coming from the drivers door also? If so, they are probably related to the same problem (ie: actuator).

I found this on one of the older threads talking about the squealing.....

The door makes a sound when you hit the lock button right?
Yes it is a problem with the lock actuator... not the door needing any lubricating!
there is no lubricating that you can put on the lock motor or actuator to fix it.. you need to replace it!
I had the same problem with mine! I had to replace it and now it is working fine!
I know trying to explain it to someone with out them hearing it.. is kinda hard to do.. but if you just get a new acutator your little PT willl no longer scream at you
