There are two rods on the lock, one goes to the overall hatch latch, the other goes to the glass latch

Here's another pic, from the drivers side showing the lock rod attachment at the hatch latch
I'm not sure what to call or where to get the plastic rod retainer for the hatch latch side. Looks like it might be challenging to work in that space, with the extra complication of the spring. Don't know if it would be easier to unbolt the hatch latch to move it to a more accessible spot, attach the lock rod, and attach the rod to the lock after the latch was reinstalled. I mean, it would easier to work on the latch if it was loose, but then you'd have to deal with getting it back into proper alignment .
