No, I am surprised that there isn't any video on it. Not my video in general. Just any video in the stickies is what I was speaking of.
Okay, my own comments easily misconstrued I admit, but my point was your entire reason for posting today was to promote your own video/channel/affiliation.
Removing the fuse or the battery cable would get the actuator to stop making noise and also not let it to continue working.
Obviously...? It also would avoid the possibility of the new one inadvertently moving while being installed if plugged in before screwed in place.
Forgive me for trying to help someone by making a video to show them how to replace their faulty actuator.
You make videos to make money. You posted this here because it was your newest content. Your videos skim over all procedures in edited fashion, make no mention of any safety practices, often show unsafe or improper procedures, you seem to never make mention of the use of any lubricants, locking compounds, torque specs, replacing of one time use fasteners or additional off camera steps that are required for a complete, proper, permanent, quality repair. You not only don't mention these things, you dont even show that you are performing these operations during your repair. I haven't seen a single new fastener, drop of loctite, dab of grease, torque spec, torque wrench, cleaning of mating surfaces, or even any attempt to illustrate any potential complexity a job may entail. Your videos serve to make every job seem quick, easy and low skill. They reduce the value of the effort and pride a quality mechanic puts into their work and diminishes what it takes to properly diagnose and repair vehicles.
As far as the number of posts I have posted I just joined this forum in attempts to help people. You started with multiple posts I assume.
You joined nearly a year ago, and you made it to more than two actual posts without videos in them just today. We both started at zero, difference is I'm not here to profit off the community or those I help.
