    Perfect fit

    Went to my auto parts store to try to find this actuator, and they wanted 60 bucks for it... Within 5 minutes of looking online I found this for less than half that. Thanks AM

    Perfect fit for my 91 LX

    My original actuator was seized in the open position. This part solved the problem and I can lock my car again. No problems with the fit and hook up.

    Great up grade replacement

    Great factory upgrade replacement. Pretty easy to do on your own. Just need to borrow a large rivet gun from a local garage or body shop.

    I forgot that there is a bit of resistance when you turn the key from outside, but this works as well as the original ever did. Thanks AM

    Smooth Operation

    Best aftermarket door lock actuator I have tried. Very smooth operation including unlocking the door with a key where many actuators are not smooth opening with a key.

    Door Lock Actuator 1990 Mustang

    The actuator kit (2 actuators, 2 rivets, upholstery clips, upholstery tools) was complete for both door lock motor replacements. The actuators fit properly and are protected from the elements. It is great to have the doors locking/unlocking again.

    Door lock Actuator

    This is a great product. It was easy to install and comes with several different rod types to choose from to connect to the lock inside the door. Installed in minutes and works great.

    There is no way to install it, as it doesn't come with the rivet like the actuator from LMR.

    So so

    Actuator did not come with any installation instructions. The picture shows that it comes with several locking tips to connect it to the door lock but it did not come with any except the one that was on the tip. There was no rivet to attach the actuator to the door. After finally getting a bold to connect it to the door and getting it installed it does not work all the time. It locks the door just fine but I have to lock, unlock, lock and unlock to actually get it to unlock the door.

    Good only missing one thing

    It worked great was pretty easy to install. The only bad thing was it didn't come with a replacement rivet. So if you get this make sure you have one.
