Hi and welcome to the forum
You will probably need new lock paddles to repair the one going round and round, these come as a kit and you need to remove the outer door handle to do them.
You may also need to check for broken wiring in the rubber gaiter and considering the age of the car it's probably not the first time It's been repaired.
