Unhappy Spring loaded door/flap/cover on console next to T/C button? Can I fix it?

I don't know what the name of this part is called so I'll try to describe it. It is the little spring loaded door/flap/cover that closes on it's own to cover the lighter/auxiliary plug. The tiny spring inside broke on one end and now it will not lie flush next to the T/C button on my console. It is to the right of the gear shift next to the T/C button on the left. Both are silver to match the trim around the console. It is driving me crazy! No one seems to know what I am talking about when I call a place and I hate going into a dealership or a parts store not knowing the name of a part especially since I am a woman (no insult intended, but they do act differently when you don't know what you are talking about). I want to try and fix it myself and was hoping it might be as easy as prying off the bezel and just replacing the door. Has anyone else had to replace one? Is it difficult? What is it called? Please help!
