Here's one thread with a couple commentaries on switching the locks:

Focus stuck trunk latch repair

Not all that easy to do. You might try taking the assemblies to a locksmith who could likely do it easier with the right tools.

(If they can't do it easier, particularly with the missing key problem, see #1 (grin))

Could not find a way to do it without seperating the assy....dit that and re-installed the spring--screwed the cyl assy to the latch...works great.

Wonderful!

Tx for the report on the fix, couldn't help further myself as I haven't had that apart yet. Sometimes just knowing it can be done is enough encouragement that you find a way...
