This is not that easy to do. What you have to do is have your dealer order you a new one FOR YOUR CAR! You must give them the VIN number and also I think a copy of the title. Then wait until they get it to you. What you have to do to replace it is take off the interior panel and with the window up you should be able to see the locking cylinder coming through the door. All you have to do is remove the retainer clip and carefully pull it out of the door. Make sure to use the rubber gasket between the body and the lock cylinder when re installing and I would suggest that when you test it you have the window open so the worst case senario you can reach in through the window. Otherwise not that hard to replace.
