You have to remove the door panel by unbolting the handle and then removing the panel which you can pull off if your brave or get a removal tool from an auto store. There is a bunch of little tabs that hold the panel in. Once the panel is removed the lock actuator sits near the rear part of the door, you will have to reach in to get it. It's held on by a rivet that will have to be drilled out to remove the actuator. After you remove the rivet reach into the door, disconnect the wire from the bottom of the actuator then remove the actuator from the rod (there is a piece that comes off the actuator and sticks into the door lock rod). Then to install it is the infamous opposite of removal. Good Luck!
