Do RX-8 Door Lock Actuators need to have the exact part number?

Post by liamkuro » Fri Oct 09, 2020 2:33 pm

I'm in need of getting new door lock actuators for both the passenger and drivers side door, I've checked the part number on the actuator and I see the number is A93-SPL-L (Passenger side) and A92-SPL-R (Drivers side). When I look for replacements parts they are often just titled RX-8 Left of Right Actuator, or some have a slightly different part number such as B13-SPL-R. Should I only get those which are a complete match to the ones I'm replacing despite them being visibly identical?

This is the number located on the plastic module with the wire connection.

Many thanks :thumleft:

I've not checked the numbers when I changed them and had no issues.

Not all UK cars came with same locks, and they're different to the locks fitted in the US, JDM and most European markets; all because our cars have "Thatcham Approved security"

Post/PM your VIN and I can check which locks your car was originally fitted with and which later locks are compatible.

They're not all the same price. Depends on part number.
