pentax program a battery cover

I bought a pentax program a from a thrift store but the battery cover was not included. I have found similar looking covers on ebay and amazon and read in other threads that the battery covers tend to be interchangeable. Has anybody had a pentax program A and another pentax model and found that the parts are indeed interchangeable? I really need to know as soon as possible because I only have 5 days to return the camera. I really don't want to though as I love the camera and have purchased film for it already and a rather pricey lens.... Thanks much!

The Super Program is virtually the same camera, so it'll have the same battery cover. See if you can't find one "for parts" on ebay!

That's what I was starting to notice when I was looking around online but I wasn't 100% sure so I thought it would be good to check, Thanks so much!
