Probably been asked 9 million times before but I'm trying to remove a door lock without success.  I have tried all sorts to compress the "tongues" but can't get on one side of the lock (obviously all from behind).

 

The manual just helpfully says "using a suitable tool".  Any idea what this tool is or looks like????

Did find this on YouTube  Seems the special tool is a hammer and screwdriver as per normal!!!

 

Jump to 2 minute mark (yes I know it's a Midget but the lock's the same)

The tool are pliers, or whatever you have in your toolbox. No special tool required.
I used a screwdriver to push back the tongue....a hammer may be a little overkill.
All can be done with the side window installed, but I recently removed the window and perfect access is guaranteed.

Prise it off with a thin flat blade screwdriver then when you have removed it throw it in the scrap and replace with these Number 59 https://www.moss-eur...ings-tr5-6.html
