Battery latch broken - HP 840 G1

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 840 G1 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

There are two battery latches on this model. The spring loaded one is broken. The accessible part of this latch moves freely and is no longer connected with the spring mechanism. As a result, the battery remains locked in place. Is there any alternate way I can trigger the spring mechanism so I can get the battery out when needed?
