Pentax 67 broken battery door

I hadn't used my 67 in a few months when I noticed that the battery door had been broken somehow and it won't pop open (see photo--the metal piece that lets you pull the door open fell off). Is there an easy way to open it or do I need to unscrew the bottom of the camera? Thanks!

I have never heard of the battery door being broken, so I assume some rough use has been occasioned somewhere along the line. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to carefully turn and open the clasp. You are probably looking at getting a new, beat-up/inoperative 6x7 /67 just for the sake of replacing the battery holder.
