Excursion 2nd Row door, 2 actuators each?

Hello, brand new to this site as of right now!
We purchased an Excursion 2 days ago and I'm going though it as it need 4 out of 5 lock actuators. I read this thread here:Power Door Locks FIXED!!!! - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums and realized as it says, I can fix my lock actuators and save myself over $200. So first door down, its pass side, row 2 door, and I realize, other that the usual actuator (at the latching mechanism, there is another actuator-like part directly south of the lock/unlock post, it does not want to come out, so I cannot pull a part number off of it. What is odd, and why I'm posting this is searches for replacement part of this shows up nothing. I looks not it was put in aftermarket (wiring does not match, mounting screw is hardware store type. So I'm wondering if someone else with an Excursion has the same part. Cannot find any pics of the door w/o panel online and my tech book for the Ex is still in the mail!
Any help would be appreciated! I believe this 2nd actuator is causing the first one (which I believe should work now) to work. Any insights?

Figured it out just the other day, the previous owner had someone put in aftermarket lock actuators, instead of replacing the factory ones, once I realized they were not supposed to be there, and were not needed, I took them out, and just went to Ford today to pick up two new ones (they were $50 each, which isn't too bad considering they are an updated part # and version, so they "should" last longer. At least Ford recognized the problem that they don't last long enough. Additionally, $100 isn't too bad considering that I was able to fix two of them with the aluminum foil on the transistor in the electrical motor trick and they work great! Broke one of the actuators, and one was faulty in another aspect, so thats why I bought 2 new ones. Hopefully I can get those both in today. Thanks for the help regardless.
