Automatic steps

Hi, the automatic steps on my '11 Astoria have just started popping on full retraction and full extension. They pop 5 or 6times then stop and stay in the proper position. Does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cliff,


Thanks, but that was about steps popping and not moving.

Sounds like a gear slipping teeth.

There are a few reasons that may cause popping. First, lubricate the moving parts, check for loose mounting screws/bolts, some have a cam like adjustment disk that the step settles on to lock it in place. It may need adjusted. The suggestion of broken teeth is a good one as well.

the step actuator is actually an automobile power window actuator. do a forum search for part numbers.
