Default Gas tank door broken, randomly opens

So this happened.

The little metal wire running through the hinges on the gas tank door randomly broke and fell off.

It'* a little annoyance to have the gas tank door flopping around, but I imagine it'* an easy fix. Has anyone fixed this problem before?
