    Changing to facelift door on pre facelift coupe I mean this

    Hi guys, I need your confirmation on this. I asked two mechanics about it and they said should be plug and play.

    My door lock actuator is kaput (both side) and it is very hard to get a used or kedai potong part. Most available are the face lift ones. In the pre face lift,you pull the door handle to open the door. Whereas the facelift one is you pull UP to open the door.

    So my question is, can i direct fit the face lift door on my pre face lift coupe? I know I have to take out my key hole (if that's name) to fit on the facelift door, if not I cannot open and lock with my key. Thanks in advance.

    PS- the door lock actuator for pre facelift & facelift is different, I've tried changing it before.
