Default Fuel Filler Door Repair

My fuel filler door is broken(some spring fell off) and need to manually open the door using the lever from the trunk. Does anyone know where I can get the part to replace this other than asking the dealer.

Thanks

I ran into the same situation with my prior '96 ES. Clumsy me accidentally snapped off the fuel lid door when taking out the gas pump after filling up at a station As a temporary fix, I drilled out 2 holes on the broken door and used electrical wiring as hinges for the door. Later on I ended up buying myself a new door at the dealership (costed about $125 including paint). Unfortunately this is the only way I know of where to get that particular part for replacement, so best of luck.

My parent's '98 ES fuel door spring-thing popped off while washing (yes, ALL jambs are wiped dry!), and was easily replaced with a new spring-thing; didn't have to buy the whole door.

The spring is only 8$ at the dealership. they didnt ask for any labor charges... Its fairly simple...
