Replacing driver door latch - 99 taurus

Good day all. My question isnít technical by any means but rather an
easier method. I need to replace my drivers door latch on my 99
taurus. I get most of it apart but when it comes to taking apart the
rods ní such on the old latch, i canít get a reach on it. Looks like
they built the thing around the latch, am I missing something or
overlooking something here?

Is the lower window run channel in the way? IIRC, on your Taurus, you can pull the
rubber window run out, remove a bolt on the bottom of the channel and pull the channel
down and out. On some you don't have to remove the rubber from the channel, it's
separate from the upper section. This opens it up a lot. Door latches can be hours of
"entertainment" if you haven't done many.
