I know when you pull it out, you permantely damage the spring mechanism, so you're not going to have any tension should you be able to get it back in. There is a way, however, as I've seen a couple posts on this board about people trying to do the same thing. They take the door and basically 'fish' around for the hinge on the inside, remembering that once it clips back in, you're going to need some heavy duty velcro or tape or something to keep the door shut, as it will now just bang against the side of the car :(

Good luck on that....
