Door lock on the passenger side is not locking/unlocking. It sounds like there is something just spinning around but not catching on to whatever it should catch on to.

Anyone experienced anything similar? Is this something that might be simple to fix myself?

How do I get in there?

I know there is a video from either IPD or FCP that shows how to remove your door panel. Just do a YouTube search.

The actuator is broken. Specifically, the helical gear that drives the lock pin up and down is split. I've taken the thing apart, and it's just cheap French plastic gears inside - glue will NOT hold.

I replaced mine with an actuator from the junkyard. It does not require any authentication with the CANbus, so no dealer visit required. The only quirk was that the window track must be removed for access, and the track is riveted to the door panel at the bottom, requiring that you drill it out. I substituted a screw and locknut, since I'm sure this will happen again someday.
