Tailgate problem

Scenic 1.6 2000 (W-Reg)

Could not close the tailgate, the lock didn't catch. Looked at the fitting on the inside of the door, found that part of it appeared to be broken and was loose. Fiddled around and managed to get it back in, so lock is now working. But not confident it is going to last.

The attached photos show the bit with the problem. The square bit in the middle with the opening is loose.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get replacements for this? Is it possible put a replacement part in place using the two bolts which can be seen?

I have seen posts which describe replacing the tailgate lock button on the outside, but this is on the inside.
