Not very easy, takes special tools and wrenches. Then the lens has to be re-calculated on special lens racks. The focus and correct lens settings have to re-calibrated.
This not a job I care for, but some do this work.
If it is an expensive lens, Nikon has a repair department. and call the 800 number under support for the Americas, if that is where you are.
Search the Internet for your lens and get a service manual. Some of these will cost, but worth every penny.

Is the Auto/Manual Focus switch turned to Manual? This can easily be moved without realising that you have done so.

If not, get it checked out under Warranty. If you try to do anything yourself you will void the Warranty.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Nikon 18-200 autofocus lens won't

OK I just fixed it, thanks to Ken who says:

"Once in a blue moon my Nikon 18-200mm won't focus on my D200. Manual focus works fine, but the lens won't autofocus no matter what I do. It's annoying!
Of course the camera needs to be pointed at something with contrast, lines or texture. Point it at the sky and nothing autofocuses. That's normal.
One time this was so bad I thought for sure I was going to have to send my lens in for service, since nothing would get it to go.
Then I discovered the problem: I had knocked the AF switch on my D200 to M. This switch is easy to knock and I had forgotten to check the obvious. There also is a switch on the lens which is not easy to knock, but I have left the lens set to M shooting at night, and I forgot to return it to A/M the next morning.
This fixes most of my problems.
Rarer is when the lens honestly won't focus. When this happens I turn the camera off and on. If this doesn't fix it, turn the camera off, press the lens release button and rotate the lens back and fourth a couple of times. This will clear any dust off the electrical contacts and focus returns."

SOURCE: nikon 18-200 mm vr lens not auto focusing on my nikon d200

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

How to dismantle nikon 10.5mm lens

If you need to ask this question, you probably should not even consider trying to repair the lens yourself. Camera lenses are mechanically very complex with many interlocking parts. Simply reversing the disassembly process will usually not allow you to get the lens back together. On top of that, you will probably need a collimator to realign it. It will cost you much less money to take it to a professional camera repair man or send it to Nikon as a whole lens then a collection of parts.

Could be as simple as dirty electrical contacts on the lens, camera or both. Try cleaning them with a pencil eraser. Also, there is a focusing motor in the lens and circuitry in the camera. Do other auto focus lenses work on your camera? If yes, it is your lens. If no, you have a camera problem. In either case, I would take it to the Nikon repair center in your error or to a qualified camera repair man. You should not try to disassemble the lens or camera yourself under any circumstances. Reassembly is not a matter of simply reversing the disassembly process.

Nikon lens 35-70 af zoom ring stuck

This is not a do-it-yourself type of repair. If you try to do any disassembly of the lens yourself, you will end up with a table full of parts you will not be able to properly reassemble and it will cost twice as much to have it fixed. Send the lens to Nikon or a professional camera repair man.

I have a new Nikon 3100. The problem now is my 18-55 zoom lens is locked and it won't move. In the manual setting and by unclicking the outer lens auto button, the focus front lens is fine. It'

Simple answer; NO! What ever you do; do not try to force anything to move and don't try to disassemble the lens. Contact a Nikon Repair Depot (found in your instruction manual or on the Nikon USA website) and they will give you instructions for returning it for a repair estimate. If it is still in warranty, there should be no charge.

Disassembling my nikon 18-105mm VR lens to fix the aperture blade... nikon and shops repair service cost almost the same as the price i both for this used lens..

You are right. But Nikon and other authorized repair service give you a warranty after repairing. This gives you a good trust to be relax.
Sometimes you face with tough conditions if you repair yourself. Sometimes it needs expensive equipment to fix the lens. So they are right.

Lens Error on NIkon CoolPix L2

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
