I was lucky enough to scrounge up a new actuator, but was ready to make the switch to a cable beforehand. Any stiff control cable (locking) should work - I don't see why you'd need a Posi-Lock kit...

Vacuum - I can't remember the orientation of the lines at the switch, but the center line should have vacuum all the time. When toggled, the vacuum is sent to one side or the other of the diaphragm...

Start at the actuator (under the vehicle) and work your way back to the switch.

You would still need relays for the remote operation.

It's a genius plan to move the switch panel though. I dread getting into the thing every time I pull the door panel. It's not that it's...

Start component swapping.
In terms of wiring, there's no difference from one door to the next, running or not.

I'd pull the actuators, and start swapping them door to door and see if the problem...

That oil sender plug would look a lot more correct if the alternator weren't pushed so far into it.

I ripped all of the torsion springs out, and replaced my front actuators with some "heavy duty" universal actuators from Amazon. They were less than $20 for 4 of them.

Pioneer MVH-X380BT.
I'm blown away by how good it is, even with cheap Pioneer 5.25" speakers in the stock locations.
