Diagram or instructions for replacing door latch

I have to replace the door latch assembly on a 2001 explorer driver side door because the spring broke and you can't open the door from the outside. Does anyone know where I can find a diagram or instructions on replacing this? I know there are a couple rods that have to be disconnected and I figured if I had a diagram it would be easier. Should I pick up a repair manual or does anyone have an experience with this they can share?

Thanks

Here is the R&R procedure for a '96 Ex from the Ford factory manual (on DVD). I'd be surprised if the '01 models differered much or at all from the '96.

There are some diagrams on the DVD. If you send me a PM with your email address, I'll send them to you.
