Found it in the trunk. The other side is spring loaded. This had a spring as well but I can't get the thing to lock in.
Trurcks or do I need a new part?

They sell repair/upgrade kits for this flap on eBay. Good thing you found the flap - it’s not sold separately from the larger trim piece.

I used a trap of elastic and rivets to attach it to the flap and the trim panel. It acts as a spring and also keeps it attached so it doesn't go flying away.

On eBay search "R230 roof flap repair"
The Seller is me, Jaguartvr. I can supply just the repair hinges or a replacement flap trimmed in black complete with a replacement hinge if you have lost yours.
There are others available on eBay but they are just downloaded from a free 3d printing site, they do not work and break almost straight away normally resulting in the loss of the flap.
I can only currently supply the flap in black. If there is anyone near Egham, Surrey who needs a flap in a different colour I should be able to help you but I need a sample to match.
I also offer a fitting service.
