Default door lock actuator


D/S rear door lock is weak and not always locking or unlocking the door with the Fob or the buttons on the driver door. It's not a battery issue, and it's only happening with one door. The boot housing the wires appears to be ok and not pinched. There's nothing binding the mechanism that I can see or feel, pushing and pulling on the door lock knob seems smooth.

My gut is telling me it's the door actuator on the way out.

A few questions:
1. does it sound reasonable?
2. I bought the lifetime bumper to bumper at the dealer when I got the truck new. I think this is covered, which begs the question: why am I messing with it myself? I guess I'm just inclined to take a look myself. I believe this would be covered, but wanted to confirm if anyone has had problems with this sort of repair at the dealer?
