: Fuel door spring for 89 535i

My 89 535i was missing the fuel door when I bought it. I just got in a door, new hinge and u shaped spring from Baverian Auto recycling in California. Can someone email me or post a picture of theirs, so I can figure out how the sping goes on?

Not good but it is a start.

Looks like I got the right parts, I think the spring clips on the front and back of the hinge, but can't tell from the diagram. I just afraid if I assemle it wrong, then I'll end up breaking the plastic used for a hinge.
