Got a customer in my store wanting me to repair a nikon nikkor 18-55mm lens DX type , AF-S 3,5-4,5 GII ED.

I diagnosed serious damage as barrel was very loose and camera could not focus.

After long time searching on web, I found a REPAIR MANUAL for this lens, in PDF format, and I uploaded it for you ! Quite difficult to find a lens repair manual nowadays....

Download it by clicking on the download button, now it is available ;-)

File size about 8MB.

I started dismantling the lens quite easy and now is just bits and pieces, but does not seem to be a quick fix, as some plastic stuff and other internal parts are damaged, so I will probably keep the parts for future repairs.

Have fun.....

unfortunatelly i dont have the 60mm service manual but send you a link in case is available so you can buy it
I got the PDF download at the top right. I think that is the one with the teardown guide. I need part# to order new parts and where to them from. Any help would great!

hm... well dont know that at all. but i think if you search for nikon repair manuals/ forums some good ones will popup for sure.

in your case i would order by giving the description on their manual. i am sure a technician would understand what that item is, or even sales dept. by performing a seach to match the words of item

anyways good luck !

I just found this through a google search. Who would have thought I'd find such a lifesaver on dA?! I have my lens sitting here in pieces after trying to repair a jammed zoom, and I can't figure out how the f the metal bars fit back around the aperture and lens inside bits. YOU'RE THE BEST.
