Rear Lift Gate Lock Actuator

Seems I need to replace the lift gate lock actuator...

Using the key in the lift gate does not lock the liftgate, but it does lock and unlock the other 4 doors.

So... anyone have any tips on how to do it, as well as inexpensive replacements?

Dealer wants $111 (it's a little pricier than a door actuator), though I've seen a couple of online OEM parts houses that have it for as low as $75.

Thanks!

The actuator is not so hard to do, need to remove the three bolts behind the plastic cover panel under the hatch then pull the assembly out from the inside access hole by removing the two wire connectors and then the cable. I paid the dealer price hoping it would fix my issue with the rear hatch popping open when I tried to lock it, but no dice.

List price is evidently now $124 on the part, but I got the local dealer to give me the part for $95 when I said I could get it online for $78 (bless him). I figured it would be a compromise of paying shipping and getting it right away as he had it in stock. But unfortunately I haven't had the time to do it yet.
