Start by removing the door panel for the effected door latch. The latch should have about 3 torx screws holding it in place. You also need to remove the outer door handle, and have to use a long thin torx bit to gain access to the screw. once the outer door handle is removed, then you can remove the door latch/lock assembly. depending on which door, you also might need to drill out a couple of rivets on the window regulator to be able to remove the latch.
Replacing door actuator on ml500. How do I remove the outside door handle?
The 1999 Mercedes-Benz door panel is held in place with two retaining bolts and 10 retaining clips. Remove the retaining bolts and pry outward on each retaining clip.
Remove the inside door panel. Remove the linkage from the actuator. Remove the retaining nut from the actuator. Reverse the process to install the new actuator.
Probably a faulty blend door actuator. Remove the glove box to gain access to the actuator. Replace the actuator with a new one.
You have to remove the door panel by unbolting the handle and then removing the panel which you can pull off if your brave or get a removal tool from an auto store. There is a bunch of little tabs that hold the panel in. Once the panel is removed the lock actuator sits near the rear part of the door, you will have to reach in to get it. It's held on by a rivet that will have to be drilled out to remove the actuator. After you remove the rivet reach into the door, disconnect the wire from the bottom of the actuator then remove the actuator from the rod (there is a piece that comes off the actuator and sticks into the door lock rod). Then to install it is the infamous opposite of removal. Good Luck!
You will have to remove the door panel. And it will be mounted over by the door lock on the inside of the door.
We have a 2002 Protege so I assume it is similar to yours. 1) Carefully remove the Door Panel 2) Unscrew and remove the Door Lock mechanism 3) Now simply separate the Door Lock Actuator from the Door Lock (The Door Lock Actuator is the part with the wires coming out of it.) Installation is the reverse. Have Fun!

You need to remove the glove box and then you will see the actuator. The glove box has about 6 hexagon screws which are simple to remove. However reaching the actuator is another story. Good Luck!
