I have received a few of these from member and in some instances they seemed to test pretty good. Did any of you before you replaced the actuator make any attempt at a cleaning of the pins in the connector for the actuator? Since it i a pretty high walled connector it it not super easy to clean the pins so I bet most people never though of it.

Wondering if just the act of putting a new actuator in is enough to clean the inside of a female connector contacts and get it back to good contact. Just a theory.

Still looking for more non working units to test if you got them laying around. Will pay for shipping to me. Would like to see what condition those motors are in.
