Default Door Actuator Pin / Broken Key Lock

Ive been dealing with a bad actuator lately as it only locks but doesn't unlock. Today as I used my door key to unlock I felt a strange pop and knew instantly something went bad. After battling to get the door panel off and actuator removed I found the culprit. A broken door lock pin! After searching here on the forum it seems to be a common problem.

Looks like I need one of these: https://www.roverparts.com/Parts/LRD2-DOORPIN

Im going to try and take apart/fix the current actuator since I have nothing to loose now. Anyone know a good thread on how to open up this door actuator?

abran makes the same part and has a thread on how to replace it. Shoot him a PM or search for it -- i have one of his pins and it is most excellent.

Not that I am aware of. I believe you have a different issue. Itís been a while since I had a D1 handle off, but I believe itís a different system.

There is no pin in a DI handle. The DI and DII are completely different.
