The one on the left (with the key cylinder) has the little plastic knub that breaks off. If yours is broken, you need it.

The key cylinder can be transferred from your old latch. I've seen a post on this site about it somewhere.

I'm probably going to change mine to a coupe latch, which doesn't have all of the electronics, and is much cheaper. I can use the key when I want to lock the glove box. Pns are 51168163017 (outer) $11.30 and 51168163018 (inner) $10.82. That's a complete new setup for less than $25.
