Question about Cameras
I need to know how to remove the front element from my 80-160 zoom lens for my pentax 645 and how to clean the mold on it
Before you remove the lens element, consider this. Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when you replace the element? If you don't, please leave lens disassembly/reassembly to a trained professional with the proper equipment.

SOURCE: 18-55mm lens won't zoom
DON'T TRY TO FIX THIS YOURSELF! You will only add to the damage. If your lens is in warranty, contact Nikon for instructions to get it repaired. If it is out of warranty, I would either pay Nikon for the repair or take it to a camera repair man.

If the built in lens hood has a rubber grip ring at its base, it is possible that the ring conceals access holes for grub screws that lock the ID ring in place. The ID ring is obviously the hood retainer as well as filter mount. Even if no rubber ring, the disassembly instructions may have you removing the whole front section so that hood goes rearwards - revealing grub screws. If the ID ring seems reluctant to move do not force it, Look for one or more lock screws.

if it is only fogged you can blow hot air on the lens while fully zoomed in and after the water has evaporated, zoom out to compress the moist air out. do this several times.
