    All 4 doors? Where did you have it fixed?



    I don't ebay



    No e because I rarely have passengers. I am also very conscious when it rains, I immediately wipe the interior dry if it gets wet.



    Wow! 4th or 5th year only and you experienced defective locks already. It makes me miss having a simple car with manual locks. Not much problems. I don't e-bay and have no idea how to fix my car.
    They should. I'd expect the current model to be the easiest to source parts for within the casa. Besides, the Altis is a volume seller and Toyota has a plant in Santa Rosa. If the part is not readily available, I'd expect them to have it in 1 week at most.

    Not so sure about that. Its a Toyota, so shops like Toyorama in the Banawe/Erod area might have parts for it. Or if not, your suki Banawe accessories shop might have dealership contacts where you can get it for cheaper.

    One thing you can do is look for your car model code in Wikipedia then ask a relative in the US to send you the part. If you can get the part number, even better.

    It's not an option for me. I don't have a relative that is car saavy. Also, nobody is going home soon. I don't even know what is really the problem since the issue is getting worse (front passenger door in January then rear right passenger door in April)

    if you have faith in your fellowman, bring it to banawe.
    "how much worse can it get?"
    10K for a lock...
    the 2003 altis i drive busted its door lock actuator. banawe fixed it for less than 2K, using surplus, in less than 30 minutes.

    my wild guess is, the supplier sent over a bad batch of actuators, and you happen to have gotten two of them installed in your car..
    i agree, them things should last much longer than that, but "business is business".

    another possibility is, they got wet, either in the rain, or during car wash.
