Great quality
I am fixing a old ford explorer and 1Aauto has the parts i need and at a great price. Also having videos to get an idea of the work that will be done is a plus. Parts worked as intended and seemed of a good quality. Doors on the explorer lock and unlock as intended.

Instructions not clear
Instructions weren't very clear on connecting the rod to the actuator. Almost broke the damn thing trying to connect them.

Why is it sold in pairs, if I only need one?
roland s on Feb 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The question may not be for me to answer. I purchased two because I needed two. If I only needed one they did sell one by itself. Since I am not getting paid by anyone and also made a one time purchase it is crazy for the company to ask me to answer questions from other customers. 1AAuto please do your job and answer the customer. It is your job not mine.
