Passenger Door Locking Mechanism Diagrams ???

I cannot lock or unlock my passenger door with the key.

I can manually lock or unlock it from the inside.
Before I remove the door panel to find the problem, I want to see if y'all have a diagram so that I know what I'm supposed to find.

I can't help you with a diagram, but its likely a bent wafer in the lock cylinder. It's not hard to remove the cylinder and take it to a locksmith and he can replace the wafer or if need be, the whole cylinder.
If you don't feel like tackling it yourself, its a half hour job for a competent locksmith, to remove the cylinder, fix it, and replace it.

Yes.
The key turns both ways, with no problems.
Makes me think that the linkage is unhooked.

Yes that's a possibility, you will have to open her up to find out. If you have full doors you will need a jesus clip remover.

I really didn't want to until I find a diagram of the linkage(s).

I do have the full doors.

Jesus clip remover?
Are you referring to a door clip remover?

You're not kidding.

But I appreciate you posting that image.
At least it gives me a place to start.
