BEEN THERE BEFORE A TIME OR TWO You will have to remove the inside door panel even if that means ruining the trim so you can get access to the lock mechanism. Once removed you can then remove retainer clip and install new lock cylinder. Make sure that the linkage to the lock is not frozen before reinstalling lock. If so spray down with penetrating oil and work it back and forth until it is freed up.
