Door lock replacement (archive)

My drivers door lock is stuck in the up (Unlocked) position. I can turn the key in the drivers door, and the other doors lock/unlock, but nothing happens to the driver door.

I took it to the dealer and he took the door apart and said it needs a door lock acuator for $325 including installation (he said the part alone was $179) Should I try doing this myself?

Has anybody taken a door panel off before? How hard is it? I was thinking of getting a used one and installing it myself
