I really screwed up

My gas lid would not open today
Once open I removed the latch that has the spring.
Yea. Now I canít get it back on.
How in the world do you get that spring back in there and get the cotter pin back in

I was never able to figure it out, so I bought a new complete latch. It's screwed in to the back of the fender with one allen screw. You can access the screw through a small hole in the fender.

i put my spring in like the guy near the end said.

the door does open much easier now.
last time i had to attach a small rope to the handle to get enough leverage to open it.
i didn't want to close it again because i didn't want to break the knob off.

Open the door all the way and it's top left. The allen screw is about 2 inches or so behind the hole. A very long allen wrench (available on ebay) is best to get it out. Or you can remove the fender.
