What kind of car? I have to assume it is like most older cars, it is a "C" shaped flat clip that you pull out from behind the lock cyl.

Don't want to say all of them, but majority of vehicles (semi's at work, and truck locks too) I've seen are held in by a clip that slides into a grove in the key lock cylinder to hold it in, and you need to pull that clip like brian said. Some Fords actually make it easy to remove the clip and have the end of the clip sticking through a slot in the door shell. And you probably have to swing the door rod retaining clips of the lock rods, many older gms were metal, and fords usually plastic. Can you shine a flashlight inside the door and see the lock, and if there is a c shaped clip holding it in?

Really need to know what car you are working on, then someone could probably tell you exactly how it is held on, or find you a diagram, just in case your car is different then the norm.

Looks like we are wrong for that vehicle, and it may be held in with an allen headed set screw, near the latch on the door.
