Installation of door lock actuator 2005 Chrysler T&C
This was a first time order from 1A Auto. I must say the entire experience was first class. The website is easy to navigate and finding the correct part was quick and problem free. The price, in my opinion, is right about where it needs to be. Maybe not the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive. When you factor in the service, excellent packaging and installation videos you're getting a very good deal. I will certainly use 1A Auto again as the need arises.

Works fine, fits Dodge Grand Caravan 2011-2016
I bought this when watched a youtube video where the guy stated that this parts fits newer Grand Caravans, so decided to buy it. It was quite challenging to install this into the minivan, but when installed, worked just fine. After a few weeks of using it works good, the time will show how this thing is reliable

Door lock actuator
Everything fine until it was discovered that no hole existed to access attaching screw on passenger side of 05 Grand Caravan. After reviewing another tutorial on
You Tube I learned to drill a hole in door for access. The actuator works fine

Easy Fix
Our Dodge Caravan has had an issue on both sides with the actuator not working. The right side is a bit easier, but in less than a half hour each, they both work as new.

Perfect fit
Unit replaced the original part perfectly. The "how to" video was very helpful. Don't go without door locks if this is your problem. Moderately easy to replace. Do it yourself and save a bunch of money over the dealership.

Cheap, works great
I purchased this after being recommended by a youtube video. It fit and works perfectly in my 2010 Chrysler Town and Country. The "compatible" model for my year was far more expensive.

Be aware - the installation procedure for this part is DIFFICULT. You have to pull everything but the window out of the door.

great price / fast service
The left sliding door on my 06 Caravan could not be opened. I took it to a local garage and was told it would take 1 hour of labor and $150.00 for a new actuator for a total of $232.50. I then went to Napa for a price for this actuator. Their price was $65.00. Then I checked the internet for a better price and found 1AAUTO at $25.95. I could not believe it. I ordered it and received it in 3 days.
I then found a mechanic who would just charge for his labor @$82.50 an hour. Total cost for fix was $108.45.
THANKS 1AAUTO for putting $124.05 back in my pocket.
