i went to get gas, and when i went to open the door; the little plastic piece that holds it shut broke off. so my fuel door would just open and shut as it pleased. then i was washing my car the the high preesur water hit it just right and ripped that sucker off. but i have been lazy about it and havent priced a new one yet i need to do that because it looks trerrible and at the same time it looks like a pain to fix it

You need to get a new Hinge it is pretty cheap and easy to replace.

Look on the Body side where the Hinge is still there.
Look for 4 holes with pins in them. Push the pins in all the way and it will fall off.

When you get the new one Snap the hinge on the door before putting the hinge on the car.

On the new hinge as well you will have to break the pins off and insert in the new hinge a little. Then put it on the car and tap the pins in to hold it on.
