United-Kingdom Broken lockable glovebox latch

Hi guys.
The lockable latch on my glovebox has broken. I've opened up the lid to access it for repair but it looks like some crucial part is missing. Does anyone have a photo of how it should be as I can't fathom out how it works Maybe I can cobble something together before I shell out ££££s on a new one.
I've tried uploading a photo of mine but can't seem to do it properly.
Also, 2nd hand replacement ones come w/o keys - is it easy to remove the lock barrel? I can remove mine but don't want to practise on it without a key in case I damage it.
Cheers, Hilton
