who to remove a inner side front door lock on 1998 Chevrolet Astro

I need to know how to pull out the lock through the inside of the door panel without taking off the whole side door, so i can replace a new lock and install it back the same way through the panel.

Taking off the door panel is the easiest part. The hard part is reaching in and getting to the lock.
