Default 2006 Vue - driver's side rear door lock actuator removal

Anyone changed a rear door lock actuator and can tell me how to get to it? I've dismantled the inner panel but there doesn't seem to be enough room to get it passed the window mechanism and remove it. Would removing the door skin help?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Get a new latch first. Then you break the old latch to get the door open. remove the weather strip from the inside back of the door opening. You may also need to remove the inside door trim panel. With a long screw drive and hammer break the plastic part of the latch at the bottom most inside corner. the inside corner is where the catch pawl pivoits. You can inspect the other rear door to help unstand how it works.

Thanks, I've been able to get it out only to find the one I bought has a different latch attachment - seller had it wrongly identified.

The bit that was keeping me from removing it was the connection to the outer door handle. There's an orange connector that has to be popped apart by feel to get it out - easily done when you can see it on the replacement.

I've uploaded a picture showing the 2 types - one on the right is for a 2006.
