I installed an aftermarket one in my XF Fairmont. I just found a constant positive under the dash and hooked into that, the negative came from the body, and that was about that, ran the wires as concealed as possible, taped them up, and sprayed the tape to match the car so it didnt stand out to much.

I just drilled holes in an appropiate spot on the door, to hold the actuators, and then bent the rods supplied in the kit to line up with the rods in the doors and connected them.

Worked fine the entire time I had it.

Only problem is that the backdoor ones worked backwards, so the actuars are extended when front are retracted and vice versa, its because the way the rods link and where I positioned the actuator, otherwise no problems to report.

I installed one last weekend in my EA. I used the +12v from my immobilizer :\

-make sure you check that the windows dont fowl the wires when wound up and down.
-run the wires from the front two doors through the same hole and boot as the speaker wires
-run the rear door wires through one of the rubber caps, you only have to drill a hole into the chasis once then
-check your work as you do each door(ie apply power and see if it works), you dont want to make the same mistake four times...

its fairly obvious, there are a few different ways to do it though. on the back doors there is a square hole where i believe the factory CL actuator would have sat. I mounted mine there. the front doors i mounted in between the pressed metal sheets (ie the space where the window sits when down.. obviously check it isnt actually in the way of the window though ). it doesnt really matter where you put it as long as it has room to operate and doesnt scrape against anything too badly.

yeah dead easy to put them in, just do as barry_v said, make sure the wires clear with window down and window with the placement, and that the window will not hit the actuator.

i recently installed a central locking kit in my ea and only encountered 1 prob - the metal thingy that goes to the door puller (lock) had to be bent i connected it to my sunroofs power source
p.s. if you installing it into an ea-ed mount the rear ones on top of the panel cause if it is inside that metal thing that stops the door from opening out too far will catch it and snap the central lock motor off (it happened to my dad)
