How do you change a rear door lock actuator?

My mom has a WJ and told me to make a post on how to change her Drivers side rear door lock actuator.

Idk if it matters but its a 2002 Laredo. I bet their all the same but who knows.
Neways hers is making a noise, so she said she went out and bought one off ebay just isn't sure how to change it. Any directions or links that could help her out would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I havent done it either yet, Will soon. But i Think it is a Really simple thing. Tear of the door cover, Get the door lock latch actuator out, replace it with the new one.

Keep US updated If you find some more info.....

well I know she took the panel off and all that. But she said she couldn't figure out how that actual actuator itself comes out....

says she has to put her hand in it a weird way or something.
nothing like how my CJ works lol..
