I pulled out the old one with needle nose pliers...pushed in the lock cylinder so the new c-clip would engage...1 hail mary...pushed with pliers & it went in. Since then though I had to get into the door panels anyway (for the window regulators)...My suggestion, get the tool to pop the door panels off & some new pins (LateModel is where I got mine). Someday you will need to remove the panels...There is a lot of clean-up/maintenance & restoration stuff to do in the panels. You can probably get all that stuff @ the local auto parts store too.
