    Hi they fasten with a nut on the inside or poss a spring clip -simply undo the nut and pull out -:thumb: forgot they also have a possi screw to hold the lever in place you may have to undo that as well but doubt it

    Check along the barrel of the lock itself. There should be a small hole. Push into this with a thin screwdriver, or a thick pin, and the lock mechanism will slide out forwards. Don't worry, it wont fall apart, (unless previously damaged). Carry out the procedure on the new lock, line up the pin with the hole in the case, and slide in. :thumb:
