Question about Cameras
Where can I get a replacement plastic lens mount from an 18-55mm lens off a D40x. I dont know how it snapped? I treat it like a baby. useless without repair. very frustrated nikon made this with a plastic mount, all my other lenses have metal
Is this what you are looking for?
I have a similar problem but haven't found details on what all is involved taking it apart.

I did get the part in from fotogeeks and all you need are tiny screwdrivers (I mean tiny) and a very steady hand. It took me less than one hour to replace the mount and my lens works perfectly. I am very glad I went ahead and tried to fix the problem rather than buying a new lens. The part cost me around $20. As you are taking the lens mount off make sure you are memorizing how everything goes back together. Maybe even grab another camera and take pics of the process. I did not do that, but had I, it might have taken me less time to get it all together again. Anyway, just wanted to share my success and suggest to others that it is not impossible for a DIYer to fix.
