according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

newer remotes just pull apart, no screws
first detached the half with the pivoting key
just pull that half away from the other half
on the half without the key attach
it splits apart to expose the battery (usually a 2032 watch battery)
you may need a small flat head screw driver to help to split it apart
