Default Replacing electric door lock actuators

I need to replace a door lock actuator. Does anyone know if it can be done from the inside without having to remove the outer door skin? If I do have to remove the outer door skin, any suggestions on how to not break the plastic tabs? Last time I removed one, half of the tabs broke : (
