Start by removing the door panel for the effected door latch. The latch should have about 3 torx screws holding it in place. You also need to remove the outer door handle, and have to use a long thin torx bit to gain access to the screw. once the outer door handle is removed, then you can remove the door latch/lock assembly. depending on which door, you also might need to drill out a couple of rivets on the window regulator to be able to remove the latch.

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!

We have a 2002 Protege so I assume it is similar to yours. 1) Carefully remove the Door Panel 2) Unscrew and remove the Door Lock mechanism 3) Now simply separate the Door Lock Actuator from the Door Lock (The Door Lock Actuator is the part with the wires coming out of it.) Installation is the reverse. Have Fun!

What you need to do is take off the door panel. Be careful not to break the door latches because they hook inside the door frame so you have to lift up on the panel in order to remove it. Once you remove the panel look insde the door to the right you will see the actuator. There are three screw located on the outside of the door frame which holds the latch in place remove them, once you have done this you will have the actuator in hand just disconnect the wires. Mike

To remove the interior side door panel: 1. remove the retainer screw from the door handle cover and remove. 2. remove the screw from the bottom left corner of the door panel. 3. pull the door panel away from the door, starting at the bottom. Lift up and off the door. Once the panel is off, it is easy to replace bad speakers or inspect / repair door lock linkage. Thanks to the above instructions, I was able to replace the sliding door lock actuator in 2 hours, most of that time involved in figuring out how to get the old actuator free from its mounting bracket and J-hook throw-rod. To replace the old actuator: 4. Disconnect the power plug at the bottom of the actuator 5. Remove the speaker for a little more room to work inside the door 6. Using a long straight-edge screwdriver, pry/pop the actuator out of the brass clip that holds the actuator on both sides 7. Once free of that holder, manipulate the actuator behind all the lock linkages until it is hanging by the J-hook 8. Wrestle the J-hook free from the linkage arm. 9. If you bought a replacement actuator from Ford, it comes with a brass mounting clip; pry the new actuator out as you likely won't need it. 10. Repeat each step in reverse order. 11. You just saved $200 in labor.
