I'm talking about a (for example) seat/skoda/vw car, in which (un)locking the car from the inside requires the driver to press a locking bolt.

Two of them broke in my car and I'm trying to find a replacement online but I just can't seem to find a name for them and/or a place where I can buy a replacement.

It appears that your best bet is to search for door lock buttons. Using that search, I see a long list of parts that include the manual push buttons that you describe.
