What is this?!

Ok im busy fitting central locking into my clio and have the passenger side motor in and all wired up and door built back up.. so i started on the driver side.

The doorcard came off no problems (Turns out its 3 white push in clips and loads of grey sealer) and when i took it off i noticed a black piece of plastic with a metal plate in and a torx screw in the middle going through the metal plate.

It was just lying in the bottom of my door.

Well whatever it is, its been snapped off something.

Heres a photo.


Is it off the door locking mechanism? because i cant open my door with the key. It's been tempremental since i bought the car. I put the key in and i can spin the key a full 360 degrees and it doesnt actualy open, i have to take the key out and put it back in then open the door or lock it.

Im just wondering if this is part of it thats gradually been coming lose or snapping off slowly? Anyone shed some light on the situation?
