Best place to find diagrams is in a chilton manual. You can either buy one or get one from the library. It has diagrams of everything.

Hello mama-- Okay, here goes. Start by closing your window the whole way. Next take off the panel at the top edge of the door by prying the top out towards you. Lift it straight up and unscrew the screws behind it. Take off the door handle trim by pulling the handle out. While holding it pry the trim piece on the speaker side, then lift and rotate it. You will see a 5/16" bolt behind. Remove the bolt and remove the handle. Set it aside. Starting with the speaker end, pry up the power window and door lock switch panel. Unplug the three connectors from the speaker, the power window and the door lock switch. You will see another through the switch panel opening in the panel. Pull off the courtesy light lens. Remove the Phillips screw in the reflector well. Lift the door panel straight up and off. Reach under the top edge and unplug the power mirror connector. Reach down and remove the courtesy bulb socket, turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Put the door panel aside. Remove the four 1/4" bolts holding the speaker. Unplug the connector to the speaker and set the speaker aside. Using a heater gun or a hair dryer apply heat to the stuck-on insulation layer and peel back enough at the top left corner of the door (about a foot). Peel back just enough to expose the door handle mechanism. Remove the two 3/8" nuts and push the door handle out along the bottom edge first. From outside the door observe how the C-clip is installed around the key cylinder in the handle and the position of the key cylinder arm. Remove the clip and the key cylinder should slide off. Twist the door handle around to release the hook shaped door latch push rod. Remove the key cylinder from the key lock push rod. Install the key cylinder in the new handle/keypad. Reinstall the C-clip. Thread the 8-wire bundle through the handle opening and through to the inside. You will fish it along the door later. Hook the keypad handle onto the hook shaped pushrod. Seat it in place, top edge goes in first, and fasten it with the two 3/8" nuts. Connect the key lock push rod by snapping it onto the key cylinder arm. Fish the wire bundle back through and along the outer wall of the door and out the speaker opening (temporary). Pull straight down below the handle towards the reinforcing bar that is spot welded to the sheet metal. Using a nylon wire tie, tie it to the reinforcing bar immediately below the handle. This will keep it away from the window travel path. Put another nylon tie about halfway along the door length. A third tie will be installed later. Good luck from Bovan.
