This is really difficult to do and you could end up damaging the camera totally the problem is their are no instructions anywhere telling you how to do this and even if you take the camera into repair shop they will tell you they dont do this sort of repair if you are going to do it yourself then buy a second hand damaged camera that you can take apart yourself and then you will know how to take yours apart.
They dont repair these and from my experiance they are really difficult to take apart and repair its not worth destroying your camera as taking apart involves thin ribbons that carry the info to the lcd screen so be warned i wouldnt advise you to do this but ask other experts if you like.
Sorry i couldnt off anymore help but ive looked everywhere for instructions on taking these apart and their just arent any anywhere none that i can find anyway

    Unless the camera costs more than $1000 then the chances of finding a repair manual are pretty slim but if you want me to look do as maklean says and give make and model maybe he knows of sites that can give you this info if he gets stuck and cant find any info for you then give me a shout back and ill look again for you.

    Hi its not worth paying that much for repair the vest thing to do is buy a damaged one off ebay then dismantle the camera so you know how to put ti back to gether take out the part you need and refit.
    I have repaired camera's before and they are not that easy to do expecially if the ribbon comes out of its socket on the lcd screen so be warned best to buy damaged camera then it will be worth repairing

The one that is still on is most likely the AC. The other belt are for the water pump and alternator or power steering pump. (the starter has no belts). Yes get a new belt and put it on like you said. Loosen whole alternator and slide back and forth to put on belt.

I broke the top lens on my Tamron AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro Lens. I dropped it. Does anyone know how to order just the lens? I can replace it myself. Everything else on the lens is fine.


Contact Tamron USA via their web site or a phone call to get a price quote for the front lens assembly. However, I would strongly suggest that instead you allow Tamron to repair your lens since more than likely the internal roller glides have been compressed due to the impact. This would allow the front lens group to wobble a bit while focusing and zooming, and this would seriously affect the image quality.
