When the power door lock has been using for a long time, the rubber stopper broke off, causes the actuator to make noise when it’s in lock action. You can replace the solenoid actuator for ~$150 or fix it for nothing. Here is how I fixed it. 1. Remove the door panel: a. Door Latch: remove 1 screw. Slide the whole latch unit to the right to unlock and remove c. Pry the panel out carefully using a pry tool all around the panel. Unplug all related switches to remove the panel safely and carefully 2. Locate and remove the solenoid actuator. There are 3 screws secured the solenoid in place. Unscrew them and pull the solenoid out 3. Open the solenoid. Remove 4 screws to open the solenoid. You can see the rubber is broken and moved out of its place I use silicon glue (the one that conies with the tire fixing kit) to glue it back together to make sure it doesn’t fall out of its place again. To put it back into the latch, I need to lift the whole unit out to have enough clearance to slide the rubber stopper in. In order to do this, I had to remove the pin and the white actuator latch.
