Here's a black replacement part.

Here's the best I found so far on the actual replacement: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 Troubleshooting

Do keep in mind that if it's a small part that broke and you (ideally but not necessarily) have all the pieces, you can use plastic welding techniques as well as liquid plastic welding products to repair the part it self. See the last 2-3 paragraphs of this for more information: Which glue will work best to repair plastic dome lid locking part?.

Good luck!

Edit: I forgot to add, if you do end up replacing the part, would you consider documenting the process and adding it as a guide?

@avnyhill you remove the rear case to get access to the battery door. Then remove the door shaft that holds the spring in place. Check for the orientation of the spring. Like @alphapeaches already mentioned take pictures for a guide and for your own record. You can now remove the door. I attached the disassembly part of the SM for you. It will show you the total disassembly but you can of course skip most of those steps.DMC-G5-Disassembly.pdf
