Al, there is a small pot metal part, basically ring with a tab, that 
breaks.  The replacement part (same as discussed on Chris Miller's 
website for the 200) is inexpensive and made of stamped steel.

You might want to get two, one for each side (I did my driver's door 
years ago, but now my passenger one has been bad for a couple years...)

Sorry, I don't have the part number.

The only real "trick" to installing it as I recall, also covered at 
CJM's site, is getting the little toothed part that controls the alarm 
mounted correctly.
