Need help with door lock actuator 2005 325xi

Hi,
I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. The rod for lock/unlock on my drivers door lock actuator fell off. I am trying to figure out how to reattach it. I've removed the door panel, etc and the bolts that hold the actuator mechanism to the door but I still can't pull it out far enough to see how to reattach the rod. I assume the actuator is attached somewhere's else but I am not sure where. It appears that it may be attached at the door handle as well. Any ideas on what I am missing?
Thanks!
Ron

Once I removed the keylock, the whole assembly actuator assembly came out and I was able to service it.
