Exclamation door lock cylinder issue/need part #

Hey Fanatics, I ordered a door lock repair kit and had trouble with the spring. I put the lock back in (broken) just so it could look like the car was locked to thieves. Well little did I know that if someone put a key in, the lock could come out. My sister did exactly that and I have all the parts except the cylindrical piece that holds the coded lock. It's hard to describe. I have the coded cylinder, but there's another cylinder that holds the coded cylinder in place and I can't find it. Does anyone know the Realoem part #? or has anyone purchased it from ebay? again I have the coded cylinder and everything else except the other cylindrical piece that holds it together. and no, I've opened the door panel and it's not in there. Thanks for the help in advance!

part number 11 in the pic is what you are talking about right?

as far as I know, bmw/dealer sells the lock as a single piece. Even though you can tear it down, they don't sell the individual pieces.

This is the very first thing I bought for the car. $160 from the dealer, popped right in and was coded to my car/key. I've only been around for a while, but I've read nothing but hard times by folks trying to go the cheap route on this repair.
