98 Ford Explorer XLT Can anyone give me a diagram of the linkages inside the drivers door.

I just bought this vehicle, cannot lock the drivers door, looks like someone used a slimjim on the door and knocked the linkages off the key lock, have other things hanging loose. Broken black wire coming from the door latch I think. There is no linkage attached to the key lock although the wires are attached. There is a long linkage hanging behind the window slide with a slight bend in it on the outside edge of the door by the door lock.

Here is the the front door latch control cylinder rod from the door lock cylinder lever.

I am still on the road, not sure when I will be home. I when I posted my question it was several hours before you answered (not blaming you) but had to leave without finishing. When I get home I will review the images and get back to work on the linkage. I do know that the electric lock actuator is missing. I would be nice if you had a cut away view of all the door linkage to work from. Thank You.
