Pictures are always helpful, thanks for sharing.

Quick question on keylock replacement

Hi all. Wanted to ask a quick question on where to find instructions on removing the driver side door trim panel to get to the key cylinder. My jeep's key only came with one remote and for some reason the key does not work to open the door. I am afraid that my one remote battery might go dead and I wont be able to get into the car one day. Picture below of the cylinder I am trying to fix. Thanks for any advice.
