Mine does. Maybe Toyota only made the door bits with everything in place - just like the dash has spaces for switches?

Thanks Clive - might be worth seeing if the mechanism is inside the door or if any of the bits are interchangable

If your door didnt come with the mechanism can it be modified to soft close? And by soft close do you guys mean the door closing itself when it makes contact with the pins at the locking area?

My '91 Custom (not Super) has soft close. There are two separate blocks of contacts, one with four pins, one with two pins. In the four pin block one pin is shorter than the others as if to delay contact on that circuit.

This one seems to be the manual closing one. I'm looking for the one that auto locks. I think it has 4 pins instead of 2
