1994 525i fuel door hinge replacement

When I get my vehicle back home, one of the things I need to do is fix a broken fuel door hinge. My Bentley manual makes no mention of this part. Is this an easy fix?

I heard it's a major pain in the ass. Mine is cracked as well and I kind of ignore it now.

I believe the hinge itself can be purchased online and that would be the best way to go about this instead of attempting to repair it.
