3 of the tabs that locks the battery cover on my w1 have broken off. I think it wasn't locked in the slot correctly and got pushed down and broke all the little tabs. I'm reduced to holding the battery cover in place by a big rubber band. Kinda embarassing looking. I'm pretty sure I can replace them if I had a part number. It looks like one piece that includes the shaft where the battery goes in. Anyone here have a service manual or know where I can find the part number to replace it? Or perhaps any ideas to lead me toward the right direction? Thanks in advance!

Wow! Awesome! Thanks for your help CybershotNut! How did you find that part number? Do you have a service manual? Any chance you can scan or take a picture of that part in the manual so I can see what it looks like? I haven't taken my W1 apart yet. I kinda wanna see what I'm getting into. Much thanks!

Sorry, I don't have a service manual for the W1. Only a parts list.
