Power Door lock problem

Seems like power door locks are a problem for some people. Well count me one of them. The driver side pdl seems to have called it quits and the car only has 46K on it. Its a 2007. Nothing says quality like having a problem with not even 50K on it. I can hear a motor humming but cannot lock or unlock with the remote. I cannot use the key to lock either. I also cannot lock the door from the inside with the plastic lever. So basically I cannot lock the door at all. The other doors are ok so far. I noticed with the other doors I could flip the plastic lever on the inside of the door with those doors open. Can't do it with the drivers door. I got the door panel pulled out with the help of YouTube. But I am reluctant to start peeling off the weatherstripping unless it is going to be worth the trouble (and possible damage to the material). On top of it all I heard getting the door panel on just right is a bear. So anyone have any ideas? Anyone want to buy the car!?
