2011 E350 4MATIC

Both the round metal lock and black plastic lever that holds it on the glove box fell out one day.

When I put the lock and lever back into its place, I can open the glove box and also close it and lock it.

But the lock and lever still fall out sometimes. I think the lever broke at the hinge where it is usually held by a metal rod/pin, like those found on wrist watch bands.

How can I repair this? Do I need to remove the lining of the glove box from inside to access the lock and lever and replace the entire mechanism?

I checked and found that the latch is broken at the hinge. That is why it fell out. The latch contains the lock cylinder.

So the only thing left attached to the glovebox is the part I circled in red.

Is that something that I can remove from the outside of the glovebox and replace?
