Passenger door lock issue

Hey guys my 96 f250 is starting to have issues with the door lock. When i push the button the passenger side door will not unlock if i reach over and use the inside handle it opens after that the outside handle will open the door just fine until i lock it again then i have to reach back over to open it i can not unlock the door from the outside with the key either. I pulled the panel off everything works fine unlocked when i lock the door then push the unlock button the bar does not move up far enough for outside handle to work. Is there a clip missing or is a rod bent maybe the whole locking assembly is bad?
Thanks guys

if your key doesn't work you need to spray wd40 or similar into the lock and turn the key back and forth repeat until it works properly, side note don't twist so hard you bend or break your key.

as for the passenger side actuator not working it maybe worn out and need to be replaced. that's what it sounds like to me
