laguna 1 lock problem

The drivers door has been stuck locked shut for a few days.
I tried pulling the rod which comes up to the button at base of the window but it came away when I was pulling at it with pliers.
After much effort I got the trim off even though door was closed, applied WD40 and got the door at least opening from the inside pull lever with a bit of pushing & pulling.
Probably need a new lock I thought, i'll see how this one works. From the open door edge I poked about to see how the catch rotated. Bad move - it was in the shape of a backward C (open) now it is shape of a U (closed).
I can't move it back, which means the car door can't be shut never mind locked as the closed catch just bangs against the metal bar on the door frame.
Please help, I want at least to close the door tonight, at the moment it's on the street with door ajar, inviting anybody to get in.
