GoPro Hero 5 Session side door bulging open

I recently noticed my Session 5's side door is starting to bulge open. It appears the small plastic piece that contains the side door release is slightly loose, causing the side door to bulge open slightly when closed. I'm wondering if there are any solutions, short of applying glue to the sides of the slightly loose plastic piece?

Re: GoPro Hero 5 Session side door bulging open

You should remove the door, make sure the door and media side of the camera are clean and free of debris. Reconnect the door and if the bulge it still there, purchase a new door https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/accessories/replacement-door/AMIOD-001.html
