Lag1 rotating door barrels

Hi All.
I have succumbed to the nasty nasty inactive plip - have managed to bypass immobiliser by the wiper stalk / accelerator method (15 no haggle for immob code!) BUT - the central locking obviously doesn't work - and when I go to the drivers door to use the key - the whole barrel just turns round and round and round.

Passenger door sometimes the barrel turns round sometimes it stays in place and allows me to unlock, reach in, then unlock using central locking button - most inconvenient.
I even found myself reaching in through the boot to get to the c. locking tonight to get home from work!!!!

My question - how easy is it to remove inner door lining and somehow fix the barrel in place so at least I can use the key?

I will try all the approved remedies for IR receiver - hair drier, disconnect battery etc etc - but need to get reliable access to the heap!

Thanks in advance
