Hello - You could call Nikon parts department: Though I don't think Nikon considers that a user replaceable part...It can't hurt to ask. Or you could find a local Nikon dealer and ask them to replace the part. It's hard to imagine them charging you the regular service rate of $xx per hour to do a five minute fix. Myself, not being tidy by nature used some commonly available Velco to strap my older Coolpix battery door back together...but it's not pretty 8^).

Yes, you can get new battery holder that comes with cover, part number is as follows: 175648311.... HOLDER, BATTERY (WITH TERMINAL Silver) DSC-W1 Camera will take apart to replace battery compartment. Hope these info will help you. Thanks.
Does this mean you have a replacement door already?
If so, you will need to figure out how the camera comes apart. This is not always easy to do. I suspect there will be screws or snaps hidden. Improper dis-assembly will cause damage to the case and/or finish.
I would contact Canon and ask if there are any repair shops near you that they could recommend.
This is an old A70, but the way it's done is very similar as I don't think this has changed much over the years. It's a pin design that you have to push out with a stiff unbent paperclip. You push in on the side with the smaller hole. To access the pin you'll need to remove the front and back case covers. See the following:
I just replaced my battery door. You have to take every screw out of the camera. I used a philips eye glass screw driver. Then, pull the front and back covers apart carefully, its only plastic. There is a pin that holds the door to the rear cover. If you push the battery door button back and fourth the pin will start to show out the side of the camera. I pulled it out once it showed with small pair of needle nose pliers. Just reverse the procedure to install the new door.
If you're handy, you can replace it in about 3 minutes. Don't attempt it unless you're willing to risk tearing a thin flexible circuit under the rear cover. Looking at the camera from the rear, remove the screws on the right hand side ( 2 ? ) then the screws across the bottom - open the card door, remove the card, and wedge a knife blade between the front and rear cover halves - the card door will be loose with an attached spring coming free. No need to remove the rear housing completely, just enough to expose the tracks for the battery cover hinge. Remove the old door, noting the position of the opening spring at the hinge, by angling one hinge out first. Insert the new battery cover and the card door in reverse order.
