    That spring that hold it in is a real pain due to access. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I have never had a problem, take the access panels off and reach in an pop the clip off, even with my big hands I found it easy.

    Maybe rusted on. Grab it with some long, skinny-nose pliers and pull.

    On my passenger door, I can lock it with the key, but can't unlock it. Any ideas?

    Old style doors can be a PITA to remove the keeper. Pliers! You can get them all kyed alike. Problem I have had is the keys themselves. many shops do not have them. Take one out and take it to a lock shop. I just found out that OEM does not offer a full set anymore.
