There is a plastic retaining clip that holds the actuator rod from the
plunger to the lock that is broken.  The fix?  Well, I actually zip tie it
back in place.  I have fixed 2 locks this way and 2 using the replacement
part.  Guess what?  The replacement part broke.  My zip strip fix is still
holding years later.
