The lock on the rear, passenger-side door on my 99 Honda Civic is broken. Can I fix it myself?

That door lock has been acting up for a while. When I would try to unlock all the doors using the power lock switch on the driver door, the rear, passenger-side door would only unlock about 50% of the time.
A few days back, I came down to my car to find that somebody had gotten in and rifled through the glove box and stolen some stuff. Now, the door in question won't lock at all -- that is, I can push the little latch down, but the door is still unlocked.
I'm not mechanically-inclined in any significant way, and I imagine fixing this would involve dismantling the car door (which I'm not dumb enough to try myself). Still, I was curious about what insight the hive mind might have. Thanks!
