That ball is what moves the lock into place. I actually bought a used vert glovebox (including the lock mechanism), and switched the internals of the lock with mine. So, I had my lock on the outside, and other "new to me" internals on the inside. That did the trick for me. Guessing you could just buy a new lock mechanism and do the same.
