I have to disagree with you zab. The closer to the direction, angle ....what ever you want to call it, the easier the movement will be. As how stated, checking "static" how easy doesit push and pull with your finger on the pull. Also, check the throw on the actuator motor. does it bottom out in either direction.... ? Try and avoid this!

Screw them relay packs. use your own, wire them like perlys diagram.

is this not how you would have hooked up the actuator?
if not, give the guy a picture
(because i have always been mounting it parallel and close to the end rod (like the picture) and it has always worked, havent had anyone come back either.)
dont think there is a difference in quality in actuator, so strength of actuator doesnt matter. (because i use cheap generic non-dei kind)

dont worry i always solder and tape my connections, those wires were just bare to show you how everything was connected.....i did have the purple wire on the 451m to 12volt, blue/green wire going to blue/green off actuator except the BROWN / white wires were NOT grounded...so was that the problem and if i do that tomorrow it will solve it? or do i really need to do the reverse polarity switch with 2 relays?

100% sure if you use the 451m again and ground the black and white wire it will work.
no need for the separate relay since the way im telling you to wire it is reversing polarity.
problem solved...

Slam, sorry if I sounded insulting but that wasn't  my intention, our Escort wasn't the same as yours, they all had central locking! The angle just looked wrong! But you still didn,t read the 451 instructions, ref adding an actuator.READ AND TEST
