Question about Cameras
When looking through the lens there is a black sort of blob inside the lens which confuses the autofocus. I have received approximate quotes of $500 and would rather have a go myself as I can get a new one for not a lot more so I need a manual or instructions on dismantling the lens from the rear
Before you start disassembling the lens, do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to realign the lens when you reassemble it? If not, you may as well disassemble the lens with a sledgehammer; it will work just about the same afterward.

The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.

You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

The only problem with doing this repair yourself, is that upon re-assembly you will need the Nikon software and hardware to readjust and calibrate the lens.
Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.
Here is the facebook page link, it has everything you need to send it in.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon d3000
The Nikon D3000 does not have a focusing motor built-in, relying on the lens to have a motor. The Tamron AF 55-200mm does not have the necessary motor; it only auto-focuses with Nikon cameras that have the motor in the camera body.
For Nikon lenses, you need lenses designated AF-S. For Tamron, you need lenses designated USD and/or BIM.
That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.
