So ive come across an issure that is a bit unique. I was messing around with the fuses(disconnecting the negative battery terminal first to avoid complications) to replace my lighter fuse(car charger). I swapped that out and closed the door, connected the battery. Next day when i go to work i find i cant unlock my car with the key. Driver side, and i don't have keyless entry. Only way I've been able to get in and out is by going to the passenger door and unlocking the driver door from the inside. Contrary to what others have found, this does not solve anything. Some here have said that doing that, fixes it for a while.

At first i thought "crap maybe i blew a fuse" but in the manual i couldnt find any fuse related to the door locks. I found some that are for the windows, thats as close as i got. I was thinking maybe ill just buy a ton of new fuses and replace them all? But i wanted to make sure that would even do anything.

If it turns out to be the actuator, could i buy one at autozone? thats where i was planning to buy the fuses.

Anybody know where I can get all the inner workings to the door? The actuator, all the bars, all the little connecting pieces. Basically everything that goes inside the door to make both handles work.

Would be great if the OP upgraded his Photobucket account so we could see the pics!
For about $300/ year? Not likely.

Alternative hosting needed then.

Even though the post is old, there ought to be a way to make some posts sticky and host the pics here at newtiburon.com. This post is an ideal example.

My 2 cents.

Fine, your thoughts noted.
You paid what to get info here? I'm thinking a few minutes time, thus "free info". Yes, it would be great for full info (including pictures) be around on the Internet forever.
It only seems like the info you want to "go away" that survives, useful info can be corrupted.
If you're on forums long enough, a site may change paths, thus you lose things.
Photobucket did a business change that FUBAR'd a ton of sites I am on.

Sorry we didn't meet your expectations......

I wasn't trying to start anything, @Charlie-III. I hope someone posts a similar thread soon, and had I had the time I would have took pictures myself.

Thankfully I managed to change out the actuator, and that solved the problem of my passenger door being unlocked permanently.

Sadly though, the door handle's plastic was so old and brittle it cracked in two places - ordering a replacement shortly!

I'm not trying to pick on you, sorry if you thought so. Photobucket changed their business model, thus a lot of bad photo links.

Glad you got it fixed. Part of why many people go to forums, either to find info or give it.
I came here for info on our Tib, I drew the short straw so I'm a mod.
Still like to help others out with what I can.

Difficulty : Easy
Time : 90 mins
People: 2 at best, 1 is do-able
Parts : umm a new actuator for the corresponding door
Tools:

-Screw driver, Flat head and Philips( you'll need a 0 and a 2 for the Philips)
-10 mm socket

Things that help but not necessary :

-Some latex gloves(lots of grease and lube on the actuator)
-A good flash light
-Screw Grabber (not sure what its actually called; ill show you a pic tho)

Remember it may seem complicated at times but its really not, i just try to over explain to avoid problems.

Step 1 : Remove the interior door panel by by removing these 8 screws (yellow) to get to the ones under the handle use a flat head screw driver to gently pry the handle away, there's a small slot on the top left part of it that you can squeeze the screw driver into. Once all 8 screws are out, pull the inside handle and remove the well it will slide right out then gently pull on the bottom left corner and pull the panel away from the door then lift to remove the top. Unhook all the wires seen in pic 2.

Step 2: You should be looking at this now. peel away the vapor barrier(if you do it carefully you can re-attach it, if your like me and don't care throw it away i have no idea what its for anyway) make sure you've disconnected the wires from their components in order to remove the barrier .

This is where the actuator is.
The two holes can be used to see and or access the two golden bolts holding the handle on

Step 3:

Remove these 3 bolts, it helps if you have a ratchet that you can connect the Philips head to, it make this easy but if not its all muscle baby.

Step 4 : Disconnect the wire cable that lead from the inside door handle and lock to the actuator. Its fairly straight forward the blue piece is L shaped (yellow boxes in pic) just pull on it towards you (like a door) then lift the metal part of the cable up. you can just yank the cable off the door after that.

Step 5 : The tricky part, look inside the door at the actuator and you should see two golden brassy bars leading up to the outside door and handle, you have to disconnect those two bars. now I've found the easiest way to do this is to take the door handle off, so take your 10mm ratchet and reach up into the space where you actuator is all the way up to where the handle is and remove the two golden bolts( one is on the left and can be easily seen through on of the two holes on top of the big opening and the other is to the right of it close to the locking mechanism) these two bolts can suck the big one and i wish i had a pic for you but i cant get my camera inside. once the two golden bolts are off the handle should come free and you can now easily access where the two bars are attached. disconnect them just like the cables before (unsnap, pull) except this time you have to pull a lot harder to get them off, don't worry they wont break. here's what the connections look like separated.

back side of out side lock and handle

two bastard bars

Step 6: revel in your glory as you should now have a disconnected actuator, oh yeah unplug it too.... duh. you should now have a door like this.

Step 7: Reassemble. everything basically just bolts back on in place, the trickiest part is reattaching those damned bars but the easiest way is to put the actuator in the door compartment in the general orientation it should be (don't bolt it in, you'll need the freedom of movement ) now go to the outside of the door and reattach the lock part of the outside handle next fit the lock in place on the handle( make sure the bolt holes line up) and now re-attach the handle bar and voila slide handle into place and bolt actuator in. here's a check list of things to reconnect.

-golden brassy bars to out side handle
-bolt in actuator
-actuator wires
-bolt in door handle
-cable to inside lock and handle
-reattach your vapor barrier(optional)
-wires to door inside door panel
-door panel(duh)
-screw in all 8 screws ( it really really helps if you use a screw grabber thing for the two under the handle, see pic below)
- close and test the door.
