    I think the lock cylinders might be held to the door by big c-clips, which you would just slide out with needlenose pliers or C-clip pliers, if you have them....Do this after you've disconnected all the linkage that's attached to the lock cyl.

    the lock cylinder is that cylinder shaped silver thing that you stick your key into from the outside, quick fix thanks to cocoabravo, pull apart your door panel, locate lock cylinder, pull c clamp, unfasten the plastic clips that hold the cables to the cylinder, retach new cylinder, re-insert lock cylinder into door, re-insert c clamp...done

    They are for both, but the power ones are usually actuated by a small motor, may not be as easy to swap.
