Question

I have a 1996 W202 C220. The door lock assembly on the drivers side front door has broken where the door lock knob rod attaches to it. I'm looking for a link on how to remove the lock assembly to replace it with a new one. I looked online and I really couldn't find a real good link. I could really use a bit of help here. Please and thank you.

Remove the outer door handle completely, and then take out the allen nut behind that; that nut is behind the weather stripping on the edge of the door.  You'll need to remove the power connectors on the lock, but after that it should be good and you may be able to slide it out.  the other way is to pull off the inner door cards, but that is a more involved process with more things that can go wrong.
