PowerShot SX20is broken battery door


I've had a PowerShot SX20is for several years now and absolutely love this camera. It's perfect for my needs. My only issue with it is the battery door is broken and won't latch tightly. I have it taped with Gorilla Tape but that's not an ideal solution. There are a number of these cameras available for parts on eBay. How easy or hard is it to change the battery door? Has anyone ever done it before? I'd love to keep this camera going for as long as possible since I can't find anything on the market now that has all the features of the SX20.

Respectfully.  This is a 27 yr old device.  Its time to let it go.  Treat yourself.  New Camera Day!
