My ashtray spring broke. Anyone tackle this or had something similar changed out at the dealer?

Mine is broken as well. Haven't had a change to pull it out. Is it usually an issue where the latch is off the peg and just needs to be reattached, or does the assembly need to be swapped? Anyone have part numbers?

Fixing this is a huge PITA. I had my ashtray out searching for a loose coin that was sliding around driving me crazy and I actually ended up breaking the tab that holds the spring in place. I don't know if these pictures will help but there are some in this thread:

Anyone have a picture of what the ring mechanism is supposed to look like? I took it out, and the latch is working, but there is nothing to put tension on the ashtray so it rolls out. It is just floppy. I see no ring of any kind so. Assuming it is missing, but I don't even know where it would go.
