Latch Disassembly

Does anyone know the procedure on removing the door lock latch assembly from a 95 thunderbird LX...... I have the door panels off, but there seems to be a plastic part that is attatched to the latch itself(on the one thats on the car). I just wanted to know which parts come off first so i can replace these damn broken latches! thanks
