DRIVER SIDE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR NEEDS REPLACING - HOW TO INSTALL????

2009 Nissan Maxima • 3.0L 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 90,000 miles

Trying to find pictures and steps on how to replace door lock actuator on driver side front door. When I activate the remote the door lock does not automatically open. I have to go to passenger side door and manually open the driver side front door. Went to dealer and he said actuator needs replacing but I don't want to pay $200 to replace it at dealer.

Can you show me a diagram with pictures of how to replace this part myself. I am at wits end trying to figure it out. I have searched the Internet and cannot find anything for my year model car.A 2009 Nissan Maxima.
