That is not an internal lock flipper. That is the part of the handle assembly that goes around the window frame to actuate the latch. It's a rather complex design. There is the chrome handle that is attached to the handle assembly and that is what is shown. Handle freely rotates on its axis in the handle assembly until the handle is "unlocked" which actually engages the handle to the handle assembly so that the tip that is touching his index finger can be actuated when the handle is pulled. The internal handle through the remote connections moves the same part of the latch that this tip that he is touching does. When the internal handle is pushed forward it moves the part of the latch assembly that this tip moves forward out of the reach of this tip. In other words the internal handle doesn't actually lock the door but just makes the external handle useless. Actually the external lock does the same thing by disengaging the handle from the handle assembly, the handle becomes useless when the door is locked from the outside. Had they done everything on both sides, you could carelessly lock yourself out of the vehicle with the keys in your hand.

I took a look at some loose cylinders to see what holds the tumblers in, nothing but time. You simply push them out. There might be a light staking or it's just years of dirt that holds them together. The lock body is what really holds them in.
