It essentially just stopped staying up when open. Gets kind of annoying, but oh well.

It's difficult to see unless you remove the cover.
To remove the cover just push the two hinge pins through using a small screwdriver.
Note that there are teflon bushings on both sides of the hinges (4 bushings on each cover).
The coil spring goes on one side (side towards the rear of the door) only.
Look carefully at the spring's tab on the cover to see if the hole ripped through.
You may have to put some epoxy and re-drill when the epoxy sets.
Happy Boxstering,
