New Latch Assembly Can Solve Noisy Power Door Locks on Chrysler Town & Country

If the door lock actuators (integrated into the door latch assembly) are noisy and/or not working, the latch should be replaced. For some model years, the actuator for the sliding door is available separately from the latch.

Passengers sliding door makes a grinding noise whenever it is locked or unlocked.
noise on the passenger side of the vehicle as if the motor has died. What can be done...and how much will it cost to replace this item. Also, is this a dealer recall or a problem with the motor inside the door unit?
Power locks on sliding doors both failed. Upon disasambly found the tab on locking controller that actuator uses to lock and unlock the door had broken off. Both sides of this car.
Ref: inoperable drivers side sliding door. I have replaced motor, wiring harness and door lock actuator. when button is pressed, door unlatches and stops, and there is a clicking sound (4 clicks) and then nothing. I think the sliding door latch assembly needs to be replaced. Where can I find one?
It appears that the description of the years affected is accurate. Passenger side sliding door is making growling sound while hitting the unlock button. Quote from dealer to repair is $1100. That is correct,$1100!
