Answer
Hi Ron,
After removing the interior trim panel, disconnect the link between the outside handle from the clip on the latch. It appears that the link is attached by a hook at its end to the lock cylinder and you separate it from the lock cylinder.  Remove wire connector from latch. Remove the 3 screws that hold the latch in place.
