Default dodge ram door latch sudden problem

so tonight i go to unlock my truck and the key is just spinning so i get in threw the passenger door and unlatch it and go over to the door and the key just spins it and doesnt un lock or lock it so i remove the door panel and cut the plastic and i see that the key is not connected to anything theres a pink plastic peice just dangling and it looks like its meant for a rod to sit in so that when you spin the key it pulls or pushes the rod to lock or unlock i would be grate full if somebody could post a picture of what it is supposed to look like so i can do the same thing there are two rods one goes up to the interior of the door the little pull or push tap thing and the other goes to the same latch as the intereior handel and the door tap thing . if i could get a picture or a in depth explanation on how to fix this it would be great and i dont even know how it happened it opened this morning thanks guys/girls

If im thinking right when cylinder is in nutral position the metal tab on back should face jam. When you turn key to left it will pull up on rod
