Battery door for Coolpix 950?

    My trusty, bulletproof, faithful Coolpix 950, which I've been using
    without any problems for five years, must've gotten wind of the fact
    that Santa is bringing me a new camera, and so, in a fit of
    self-destructive jealously, has managed just today to break its own
    battery door. It's one of the little tabs on the door -- no damage to
    the body itself -- but the upshot is that I have to press and hold the
    door closed to get the camera to work.

    It seems like it should be easy enough to replace the battery door. The
    question is where to get a replacement? Does anyone have an old 950
    laying around that could be scavenged for parts? Barring that, does
    anyone know of a good (viz. inexpensive) source for a replacement door?
    I don't want to chuck the 950, and I suppose I could use electrical tape
    or suchlike to hold the door closed, but that's so tacky... I'm afraid
    sending it to a Nikon dealer for service would cost more than a new
    Coolpix of similar or better features.

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Scott
