the door covering the charging port

Hi

 

Somehow or other the door covering the charging port came off in my hand when I opened it recently. It came of fairly easily, but it's really hard to get back on and I haven't managed it yet!

 

Any advice you can offer regarding how I can refit it without straining or breaking the hinge will be gratefully received.

 

KInd regards

Re: the door covering the charging port

Many thanks, fishycomics, for an excellent solution! Worked perfectly and now the charging door cover is back where it should be - I hadn't realised that the hinge could be pulled out in that way, and a broad-bladed screwdriver gave me the leverage to get it to move. Thanks once again!

Always welcomed, about 50 on/off it will loosen up. if you like a lil lube on the hinge will help slide it on/oo easy I suggest to put that on a tooth pick first then touch it. selicone not wd-40 selicon does not collect  dust like wd-4o does and dries rubber out.  my thoughts out loud.
