My uPVC patio door handle recently stopped working. When I took the handle off and removed the spindle, I found that the 'follower' (square hole that the spindle goes in to) has shattered. I've attached a photo where you can see that the bottom and right side of the follower has broken off.

I understand that the whole lockcase needs replaced with something like a doormaster uPVC door lock. However, I'm not actually able to open the door because the follower is broken.

Any advice on how I could open this?
