Something that I broke.. GRRR!

After using the search engine, I came across this link..
http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=336616
cause I couldn't figure out why my gas lid wouldn't open. Hopefully something I pulled before I broke this lil part off that I will not have any more problems with my gas lid now opening fine.

Do I need this part that I broke off?

You opened your fuel door incorrectly, that's the problem. User error, 99% of the time.

Im not exactly sure if other sedan's have this problem with their gas lid opening with no problems at all, but mine gets stuck from time to time now. Where it doesn't want to open up. In the near future: I don't really want to go back and forth to pull that green tab again. Now that I broke something that's plastic? Do I neeed this replaced or can I leave it alone?? It doesn't bothered me.
