Here are 3 pictures of a Sigma lens for Nikon. Your lens should look about the same. Could be a little less connection points, but notice there is no plastic.

Wow I appreciate your spirit but this is probably a loosing battle. Even if there was a repair manual you would still need the tools. This is a $150.00 - $200.00 lens. I'd probably elect to buy a new one and sell the broken one on EBAY for parts or try to take it apart just to satisfy my curiosity. Sounds like you like adventure.

Good Luck!

Lens is stuck, rattles inside lens


these lenses are made with mostly plastic parts to reduce cost. if the lens was bumped on the front it is common to break the cams that move the lens in and out, unfortunately it is more cost to repair versus replace. there should be nothing "loose" inside the lens

If you are experienced or brave enough, dismantle the lens from the rear until you can recover the loose piece. You will probably find that the rear cluster of lenses has fallen off the other end of the helical cam tracks on which it travels. This happens because the two steel strips have got bent. They should run exactly parallel to the axis of the tube. Remove the two strips (4 screws) and straighten them carefully. Reassembling this lot is difficult. Engage the lens cluster on its tracks--it will fit 3 ways and only one is correct. The loose piece is a light baffle which engages with the back of the lens cluster and again will fit two wrong ways and one correct. It has a projecting lug which travels down a groove in the tube. When I had reassembled mine it still felt stiff and about to seize again and I am sure that excessive friction causes so much force that the steel strips bend and lead to it all falling to pieces. I greased the moving parts with silicone grease (from a plumbers merchant!) --most other lubricants either harden up or damage the plastic. I managed to break the wires to the auto-manual switch but they were easily resoldered. The lens now zooms smoothly and takes good pictures. But take care--it is easy to create more faults as you go.

Hi. I have this same problem. Have you managed to fix it yet? I've been told that it would cost £100 to fix it, plus a charge of £20 to send it away.

Nikon d90 lens plastic mount broke


I feel for you. exactly the same happened to me but i was looking to upgrade lens so i used it as an excuse.the piece is called a bayonet. what lens is it, is it the kit lens. my lens was unfixable so  am afraid as the mount is plastic the whole lens is a right off, if it was a metal mount it would be worth fixing. sorry

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.
