Travel Lock Woes

Today I took the Safari for some service and when I got there, the entrance door wouldn't open. After some fiddling I realized that the travel lock bolt had not pulled back even though I had thrown back the knob. After I got the door open by pushing the bolt back with a thin bladed screwdriver I discovered that bolt had come free of the lock mechanism. It won't retract now.

Actually the "bolt" looks more like a crush pin I believe it is called. Is this the correct configuration of the travel lock, and can it be fixed?

John

I will but there's not much to see, a small tube of metal and an empty hole. Do you have experience repairing the travel lock?

Again, if anyone has any info on problems with and fixing the travel lock/dead bolt, I'd appreciate hearing about it.
