Question: Convertible top repair

I was putting the top down and a roll of paper towels got caught in the crack of the closest trim to the seat. The peice is flat with two trianglular wings on each end. The drivers side wing one pulled a spring loose. how much should I expect to pay to repair. one end of the spring is still atattched the other is pulled open. I can't get to it because i've had a stroke and can't pull the hook back into a ciccle.
