I sympathise with you wotavidone, the petrol flap on my car started flapping by itself due to one plastic spring missing the other one broke, renaults wanted £45 for the whole assembly. 2 plastic springs must cost about 10 p each.
I searched my bits box and found a bit of sprung steel, shaped it and fitted it with a bit of grease, been OK ever since.
