What tools will I need where can I find a replacement at the local Auto parts store. Is there a exploxed image that show how the mechanism is assembled. What parts is missing. Thank you Will

If you can lock the door using the key, the mechanism for the lock like the latch should be OK, the power lock for the door may just need replaced.
Below is video I got when researching,which shows the inside. Pontiac or Chevy cars for that matter have the same parts only difference are the sizes and slightly different locations for the components but the principle should be the same.
