I need to replace he right rear door acuator on my 2002 Mercedes ml320. Any hints,shortcuts on how to do it? Do I need to take out rivets on the airbag & window channel? All help appreciated!!


I have replaced it in the past and it is a pain to get to. Not only does it require you to take out the rivets but it is just hard to access and you don't have much room.

Plan on a at least a couple of hours when you do this job. Especially since this is your first time change the door acuator.
