	There is a how to here:
	I had to do some low level rod bending to get clearance for everything but
	it fitted fine
	My understanding is that you need a new cam / bracket and new bare lock
	cylinder. Then you need to take the lick tumblers and itty bitty teeny
	weenie springs out of the old cylinder and fit them to the new one
	I think that the new stamped cam / rod bracket only fits the new cylinder
	and the old one, which was made of camembert, only fits the old lock
	AFAIK the PNs for a 1990 are
	893 837 287 C  (driver's side)
	893 837 288 C (passenger side) 
	Cylinder (depends on key number according to the family album)
	893 837 061 B (driver's side)
	893 837 062 B (passenger side) 
	893 837 061 C (driver's side)
	893 837 062 C (passenger side) 
	N 012 411 1 Lockring $ 0.70
	Just for reference, what year and what door is this for?

	The bracket on the end of the door lock cylinder that holds the locking
	rod on broke.  Upon replacement I am having difficulty getting it back
	together. I looked at the bently and thought I was proceeding as
	described if anyone remembers any tricks for this that would be
	appreciated. I know you have to line up the tooth on the piece to the
	specific spot on the white plastic thing, alarm sensor I believe.  The
	bracket that the locking rod goes into is not going on to the cylinder
	end to get the lock ring on.   I did this on my other avant but don't
	remember much of it.
