The plastic spring loaded catch which houses the lock has broken but will still lock.I won't see the car until next weekend and I was wondering if someone could tell me which part I'd need in order to repair it.
Also will the original lock be able to be changed over?
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Can you see the parts in the picture?

It does look as if the locks can be swapped over, but I have not had to do this myself.

5,6 and 8 come in several part numbers dependent on the colour of the plastics to match the car. Your local citroen dealer will have access to the same picture and should be able to tell you which exact part numbers you need to match your interior colour.

At least you now know that the parts you need have numbers which is encouraging that they are probably available.

5 and 6 are interchangeable parts - 'with lock' and 'without lock', so you would only need one.
