Hey all, was wondering if anyone had a part number or a source for the oil door latches for Bellanca built Citabrias? I have to take a closer look at it when I fly next but I believe just the spring portion is broken so if its possible to do a repair I am open for that too just not sure what components i'd need to make it work. In the meantime I am able to still operate the latch just won't spring open anymore and it bothers me. Hoping it doesn't cost a small fortune!

I bought two from ACA recently. Don’t remember the price, but it wasn’t unreasonable. Easy install. Lee
