    buying a replacement part without knowing first what is wrong with yours, might be an expensive proposition.
    I didn't just decide to replace it blindly. I'm 45 and all my life has been dedicated to breaking and rebuilding stuff.

    Of course I did due diligence and confirmed that the part was actually defective before ordering a replacement. And in my case, it wasn't the electric motor, rather, a small gear that has cracked and started slipping from its shaft is what's causing me a lot of greef.

    I figured that I just get it over with and looked for the whole assembly. I eventually found one from a wrecked 2011 Civic (USDM) posted on eBay for $48. Part numbers were almost identical but more importantly, they looked exactly the same.

    I replaced the whole assembly myself.



    Spending just a little under 2.5k* for the whole latch assembly (including S&H), it's a bargain. I got to learn about the innards of the car door pa.

    *Note: My earlier estimate was based on the current Forex. The Forex rate at the time I bought it (March, 2014) was just around P45 to the US Dollar.

    well, you did omit this little tidbit of information, from your original post...

    Yeah, well, it was right about midnight and my spelling skills went to bed ahead of me.

    All those Peanuts comic books I've read as a child going to waste, I've put shame upon Charlie Brown.... Good grief!
