Mike, Glad you found it. I think the motors are all the same for the 900 and 9000, it is just the integral actuator rod which differs. I got a trunk motor and, with surgery on the new motor, put my actuator rod for a hatch into the one for the trunk. I do not suggest doing this, but finding a direct replacement from a salvage yard is best for your pound sterling. Also, you might check the standard parts suppliers on the web. Even though it is not listed, they may have a replacement available. Good luck Keith Grider "Michael Hargreave Mawson" <OCnopsamFoot.com> wrote in message news:Jp8TeFEid8t5EwW5nopsamreave-mawson.demon.co.uk... > In article <Yobt5.3709$W4.102065nopsamoon.columbus.rr.com>, Keith Grider > <bettynopsamam.columbus.rr.com> writes > > >> Central Locking > >> ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ > >> The central locking doesn't.
