One of the back doors on my car doesn't open with the remote. I checked it and apparently something gets stuck & it gives a ticking sound, I guess I should change the door lock or just clean it.

Anybody has a DIY how to remove the handle & cushions to check on what is happening?

I just changed out my right front power door lock. When I disassembled the latch down to the motors I found the motors them self to be the issue. When I tried to spin the motor it was kinda crunchy. I didn't open up the motor to see if it was the bearing or brushes. I am assuming it was just the brushes disintegrating.

Is it easy to remove the cushions? do you have photos?
I saw a thread for the front left door, should I follow the same steps to strip the door for the rear left?
