Question External key hole lock cover

Many thanks to fellow Birder, Carl Heller, for providing me a replacement key hole lock cover for my driver's door. It includes the cover, stem, and spring.
And I haven't a clue how to install it! Any guidance available, folks?

Bless all here!
Matthew

Hey Matthew,
Interior of door (trim panel) is going to have to be removed. Pic below shows how exterior lock removes. Thanks to Anders

You really don't need to remove the door panel to remove and reinstall the lock cylinder. It just pulls out when you remove the retaining clip. You just have to line up the fork with the two holes in the latch mechanism when you reinstall it.
