Same here!!

My handle looks identical to this only my lock is still there. Local salvage yard quoted me $10 for the glove box door and no gauruntee there'll be a key for the lock.

You can buy the lock there. My dad works at an auto place, so he can order the parts from there. The latch assemblies come in different colors by part #. The one I got was 25632251 which was beige. Hopefully thats a match.
[edit]typed wrong part #

If the lock cylinder is removeable -how? I looked it over and over and can't see how. My lock is perfectly good. It'* just the handle that is broke just like yours. That was a bad day when that happened (got REALLY P.O.'ed at work and punched a hole in the side of a semi trailer and really messed up my right fist. Did the same thing again on Saturday overtime only this time with my left hand -knuckles are slowly recovering).
That part # for the handle is what I need. Same color.

Thanks,
Martin

I'm pretty sure you gotta take the torx screws out and take the latch assembly apart (I got the car with the lock taken out and the latch broke, so I dont know how it was taken out). 25632251 is the part # for the beige latch assembly (I typed it wrong in my other post, but I fixed it now). When I get it in 2 days, hopefully the color will match.

Okay guys, just found out how to remove lock cylinder. On the top of the plastic housing that the cylinder slides into you'll see a small slot running from front to rear. With the key out, and the lock in the "unlocked" position (keyslot straight up) you'll see a metal tab visable in that slot towards the front of the housing-....remember we are still on the back side of housing. Press down on that metal tab (small screwdriver) and insert the key, and turn counterclockwise, and pull out.

Thanks for the info. That'll help me out when I get this lock cylinder figured out

I got the lock and latch today. I got the new latch put in, but the lock cylinder is only the cylinder, none of the pins (or any other parts that are supposed to be in there )(see pictures). What other parts do I need for this to work? Thanks

They did that so you can key it for your key. It'* been a few years since I've done it, but should be able to figure it out. I'll get back with you, if nobody else jumps in.

That extra piece looks like a retaining clip. May not be necessary, just a standard piece with the kit (just a guess though, don't trash it yet!)
