Question about Bosch Microwave Ovens
Yes, for some brands and models.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

One of the latches may have broken off
and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from
any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the
clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door
to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily
adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door
catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then
tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by
slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.
