'99 Camry -- fuel filler door broken

I have a 1999 Camry. This problem came up recently.
I pull the remote fuel filler lever in the car BUT the fuel filler door does NOT open.

The fuel filler door is broken -- in order to open it, I must pull on the remote fuel filler door lever -- then wedge something in the lever to keep it pulled open.
Then I exit the car, go to the fuel filler door and stick a credit card in the gap -- this will allow me to open the door.

Someone had mentioned a "V" shaped thing in the door, but I did not understand.

Your advice is welcomed.
Thanks,
Diogenes

Yes, there is a V shaped spring that pushes the door out when you pull on the lever.

That spring is either broken or broke off.

For future reference, please do a search as this issue has been previously covered. You can get it at Napa for about $4-5. I posted the part number you'd look for at Napa on here before. Do a search and you should find it.
