help with the damn locks again!!

okay guys i need to do the tin foil mod... i know what it is, and how its supposed to work, but i cant get the damn locks out of the friggin door!! anyone have any tips or short cuts to get these things out?? also do i need to pull the whole damn assembly or just the actuator... it seems like it should slide out of the assy but i cant get it to move....

things ive done:
1. removed door trim
2. removed three hex screws holding the whole door lock assy
3. removed two nuts holding the outside door handle to the door
4. disc. everything but the electrical connectors and the cable from the inside door handle<<<<< thats my problem i cant get the damn cable disc. or if i dont need to disc and can get away with removing the actuator only somehow... any ideas????

(oh and i cant get a BFH in there sooo that option is out).... and i dont think it would solve anything anyways.

Re: help with the damn locks again!!

If i remember correctly you have to pop it off a post that it sits on (or something like that). I remember using a long screwdriver to get it off. Sorry I have no more information than that. I may have used the screwdriver to get one of the rods off of the lock. I remember it being a pain.
