I30 2010 dreaded door lock actuator
« April 09, 2019, 17:01:28 »
Hi all, we have a 2010 i30 with the dreaded grinding noise from the front passenger door lock, only when we lock it.
I believe it's a door lock actuator I need but hyundai want over 500 to fix it when they can get the part, apparently they are on back order with no idea of when they will get one in.
Can't find one anywhere, does anyone know somewhere who may have one in?
I have seen an actuator repair kit which basically looks like a single toothed wheel, but can't find any guides on if this will work or how to repair it? Many thanks for any help

Can't help with the repair, first I've heard of a repair kit. Can you share the link so we can all have a look please.

Nothing available used online or from wrecks?

Should work but there's a couple of versions. One with the deadlock feature and this one

81310-2L070 is the deadlock version. All ours over here had that

I'm going to say that the likelihood of getting that lock apart and fixing it is slim. Just mangled mine to have a look, there's plastic tabs that are melted that need trimg off, tabs un clipping and the plastics are hard and brittle. then there's springs and gears likely pop out of position on opening and then you have to hope that gear is the issue.

I'll stick to the window clips, the lock for me is  looking difficult, I'd want several donors to practice on first.

You're not practicing on me, I'm too old and brittle!  :snigger:

The lower motor is the deadlock feature. Not all models had this but I believe all Australian cars did have the deadlock. basically if you locked the car with the remote, even if the window was down you can't simply use the snib inside to unlock. You will need the remote. It's the second noise you hear when locking that is deadlock. If the plastic gear strips, then there will be screeching grinding noise, door will be locked but not deadlocked. I've had a rear door with a that issue.

also safe to assume things are no longer in position where they were pulling this apart. nothing obvious  broken . hope this was the faulty one I had :wacko:
