New to group... and now my 16141822 actuator has gone south; 95 Bonne, 142k miles, still runs great, already did the upper intake maniforld, ac compressor, all struts, water pump 2 times, brakes once, master cylinder more times than I want to admit (crap parts til I got the Bosch)... anyway I've been working on it here and there for a lotta years already, and now the actuator is gone - very limited rod movement, so gears are probably stripped/binding.
So my question is - is there a shortcut? I've read where someone said if he knew how to get the passenger side airbag out it would've been easy - is it possible? has someone here done it through the airbag hole? I'm old and lazy and just don't want to pay dealer prices... so will do watever it takes, but sure would like to hear a shortcut
thanks in advance,
