    Default 04+ door latch

    Does anyone know if the left side and right side front and back are the same?

    All I can seem to find are the fronts...relatively cheap.
    The right front I see look the same physically as my right rear.

    So after wrestling with this to see what it is, what I need I came across a cheap solution.
    I'll give this a whirl when I have been inconvenienced enough.
    Works on an Impala why not on a GP
    This experiment (5 dolla) is much cheaper than a $90 Dorman pos latch that they can't seem to describe as works for front and back on respective side those fckn homos, no dig on the gay community just sometimes life is a cluster fck

    So i got one of those for 4 dollar bill.
    I remembered to bring my fluke home so I checked power across the grey and tan pins.
    Grey was cool, tan was dead.
    I yanked the seat belt shroud off and checked the plug under it to door.
    All was good there.
    I pulled the boot off the run to the door and the tan was cut. Just like someone took a snips to it.

    Strip, twist, solder and heat shrink later the stock latch works.
    Lotsa fiddle fckn around

    The damn thing that makes my up and down thingy go up and down.




    For anyone else don't be a dumbass like me and break all the clips off. I started with a panel clip flat bar outside.....duh

    First take off the the seat belt panel, unclip the connector and try to push the pins in to release the hinge side rubber boot.
    You can see the white spots where they use to be
    A few zip ties, black RTV and finger crossing to correct that one.
