I have an 03 Trailblazer LT and the drivers side front door will not latch shut any longer. The latching fingers give easily and have no resistance, unlike the tension in the other working doors. I took off the door cover and fiddled with the rods and lock mechanism and lubricated the unit. The first time I did that it started working again for a few days and then failed again. A repeated attempt was unsuccessful.

I have identified the replacement part number for the assembly and priced it at $113 to $134 new. I would like to avoid paying that much if possible and will consider trying to find one at a junk yard.

Can this assembly be repaired? Is a failed actuator a possible culprit here?

I would appreciate your feedback.
