Need help to identify a leaf spring in AF200SA flash

I had taken the batteries out of an AF200SA flash. When I went to reinstall them, I couldn't pull out the cover. Well, you aren't supposed to - you pull it a little bit and then it pops up - but only if you have batteries in there to begin with!

Before I learned this, I figured I could undo a couple of screws, pop the case open, and figure out what to do next. When I did that, I realized that the cover was supposed to pop up. In the process of putting it back together, I discovered a little leaf spring had fallen out from somewhere. I have no idea from where.

Attached are a couple of pictures (the overall length is a bit more than an inch). (Pictures taken with my Canon G15 - a very nice little camera, and a lot easier for a couple of quick macro shots than unlimbering my K3 and attaching the macro lens!)

Does anybody know what this is supposed to do and where it "lives"? If you've got one of these, maybe you can pop up the battery cover and see if you see anything like this.
