It seems that I am on the brink of seriously destroying the door by beating and prying the lock out. What is the secret here.

I just experienced this problem. Thought I would share my experience. Once you remove the lock cylinder, you should be able to remove the entire door. You will need to remove two of the screws that hold the door frame together, then slide the door facing out. There is a metal clip inside the door that holds the lock in place. You will never get the lock bezel out without dismantling the door panel. Good luck.
