Anyone have a wrecked car they are parting out? Anyone have access to a cheap price on one of these?

Not sure if I would recommend buying a used DLM unless you check it out thoughly BEFORE you tear your door apart and install it. Chances are you would end up with a DLM in worse shape than you are replacing. Or,....one that would fail shortly afterwood.

If you do but a salvaged on make sure you do some home work and trace out the electrical. You can check out at least 3 of the 4 microswitches by checking at the connector using a multimeter.

Better to buy a new DLM from a discount parts place like https://www.1stvwparts.com/partscat.html. Left side cost $110, right side $85. The new replacement ones are a whole lot quieter than the old ones
