I am not quite shure how you took lock out without abolish anything since this is euro profile lock and cam is in that position!?
But never the less you can easily turn it in "normal" position, assuming that lock isn't broken or something
which isn't visible from your picture, by picking both side. One side will be cam jammed and the other side
will be free for turning without turning the cam.
Also this video may be could help you to get idea how cam works:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNZwFSi4-N0
