Hi, can somebody help identify the power door actuators of the 5 doors of Suzuki Sidekick Sport 1.8l engine??
Pics would be best and where they are located??

This may seem obvious, but the power door lock actuators are going to be inside the doors hanging off the bottom of the door lock assembly - it's hard to miss them.



This is an ebay auction picture of a rear door lock for a Sidekick, the actuator is the piece on the lower right with the electrical connector, they are not supplied as a separate item, although they can be separated.

Open your door, find the wires and follow them.

When needing to replace mine, I found it a whole lot less expensive and WAY easier to just install aftermarket solenoids right to the existing lock linkage rod. They connect to the same two existing +/- wires as well! 😉

Thanks. The door behind the driver, that does not have door lock, just stops working, cannot lock and unlock. Does each door must have one separately??

Yes, each door, including the tail gate on a hard top vehicle will have an actuator.

Thanks Max and Fordem. Are they all the same to fit Suzuki Sidekick?? Or there is specific one??

They are universal in nature, require only a small void area in which to reside and you'll need to be a bit handy to install them.

A couple of how-to installation videos...
