The above link will show many useful photos on replacing an actuator. Member had a 97 Buick. Very similar car to yours.

Hey Toddster! I didn't even realize you posted. Thanks for the information.

The only thing, though, is that the actuator I'm replacing is at the bottom of the programmer. The one in the pics in the link that you posted works fine in my car (a bit squeaky, but works fine). The one I need replaced is at the very bottom of the programmer. But the pictures are very good at showing where to go to get to it.

Apparently, the bottom actuator that I need is quite different from the top actuator. In the pictures, you can see a little white plastic worm that drives the gears. Well, on the bottom one, it'* all in one housing (motor/gears) with a little black lever out the bottom...

I took it out yesterday to look around. I took pictures so I guess I'll just have to make a how-to on removing the programmer and the motor. The motor would only work if I gave it a nudge in the right direction... So, since it'* the winter now, I have the motor positioned toward full hot and I unplugged it inside the programmer.

Fortunately, I found a replacement on eBay. RockAuto had it, but they wanted $80. yeah right!

Thanks Again,
Nick
