[200q20v] Driver's door lock

I just replaced the passenger side broken pot metal arm that connects
the cylinder to the rod.  The updated parts include a new cylinder to
fit the pressed metal arm and a snap ring instead of the original pot
metal arm and e-clip.  $30 at the dealer if it doesn't turn out to be
a plastic rod clip.

It only took me since picking up the car in March to get around to it
before the driver side also broke.  In spite of Bernie's economy-mode
approach ;->, this would be a good thing to fix even if you can still
get in the other side.
