Fixing a 1541?

I just got my old c64 dug out of my mums basement. Theres a story i wrote on it a long time ago Id like to access. problem is there is somethign wrong with the 1541 disk drive. As I recall, the manual door latch clicked shut. Now it's 'loose'. It doesn't stay up in the open position (just falls back down) and doesn't 'click' in the down position to be 'closed'. The drive won't read any disks because it thinks the drive door is 'open' and the drive in 'not ready'. Is this fixable, and if so are there instructions someplace on what to do? I'd like to try fixng it myself if possible because im not employed right now and every dollar counts.
