1995 740IL door lock actuator

Can anyone help me. I have a new drivers door lock actuator that goes on top off the door latch. Do I have to remove the whole latch unit to replace the electrical lock unit or can it be done in the door panel. Any help would be Great .

Lube the lock with WD40 or similar on your way out.
