Gas Door Doesn't Stay Open

I recently had my 01 serviced for a oil leak (main seal) and while the dealership was doing it's overall inspection they noticed that I'm missing a small piece that keeps the gas door open when refueling. I bought the car used and I never knew about this feature. Instead of spending dealer prices I was wondering what is it called and where can I get one instead of buying one through the dealer?

I believe it is properly called the "ausgeopenenholdern".

Yes but be aware that "ausgeopenenholdern" is the mechanic's short-hand for "das flappenstayoepenhanselundgretelstassenmitstickem."
