66 Impala Door/Trunks Lock Replacement

Need some help, I need to replace the door and trunk locks but I cannot find a drawing or video of the assembly to ensure I remove and replace correctly. The 2 service manuals I have do not show the application.

It is described and pictured in the Fisher Body service manual. For the doors you remove the plastic door lock knobs by unscrewing them. Remove the door handle and cushion by unscrewing the screws that hold it in place. then using a plastic pry bar or trim removal tool start pop inf the card board door cover off of the door. Once you have everything unsnapped carefully remove the tar paper/plastic weather shield inner door cover to gain access to the door lock. The lock is held on by a wish bone shaped steel spring that slides off to one side to allow the door lock to fall out.

Same for the trunk except there are no covers keeping you from the lock so you can practice with that one first.
