Question about Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens
My lens started catching as I zoomed in and out and would not go wider than
~24mm. The problem is one or more of the screws holding the zoom
mechanism comes loose and jams. Follow this link for the fix; took me
~20 min to repair (I went very slowly)! Much easier than taking it apart from the rear.

There is nothing I could find for web based diagrams. The lens comes apart from the rear. The contacts have two screws holding them to the mount ring. You must free them up first before removing the mount.
It gets tricky after that. The mount has a long arm attached on the back side that extents into the lens to the aperture. It is slotted and hooks to a brass pin on the side of the aperture assembly. There is also a ground wire attached to the mount as well.
Do you wish to get into this?
