So, I've taken to do some cleaning and relube work on the entire door closing parts as far as electric lock motor and allen4 the parts that keep the doors closed. I seem to have hit a snag tho, I can't get this rod snap off so I can pull out the mechanism out of the door.  Pic below. Is there a trick to removing it and preferably without breaking? If it does break, can a guy still get them?

If I'm worried about a plastic piece breaking I heat it up a little with a heat gun or hair dryer.  If I remember that one correctly you squeeze the halves together and push it out of the hole.

Hello Dwayne. When I disassembled my doors I ended up using a wide flat head screw driver to pry it out. You have to be sure you are pulling it straight out and not at an angle. If you end up braking it in some way I'll let you have one of mine. So I say give it your best go and if need be I'll help you out.

Instead of pulling the whole mechanism out, is it possible just to loosen it up so you can access it though the open area facing the interior of the car? That way you can just clean and lube it inside the door.

Also make sure to get a blow gun and check all your door drains. There should be small holes at the bottom seams that allow water to run out of the door. I haven't seen a SQ one clog but it doesn't hurt to check.
