Question about Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX (silver) Lens
You're going to have to disassemble the lens and reseat the ring. This is never easy, since there is a precise way all the lenses and focusing mechanisms have to be reseated exactly right, and there is the issue of dirt or dust getting into the lens when you attempt to disassemble it and try to fix it. I wouldn't think the average person could successfully repair this lens, but a skillful technician of sorts may be able to. It's going to be hard to find a technical procedure for this, since only repair facilities usually do this. My suggestion would be to take it in to a reputable repair shop and see what they think. Often the cost of labor to repair a simple thing like this can exceed replacement cost, so make sure you get an estimate before considering having it fixed. If the repair shop wants too much, you might opt to try it yourself. Just make sure you have a set of jeweler's screwdrivers, and make a diagram of each screw and location, as you go, and use extreme care not to touch the lens surfaces any more than you have to. You might get lucky and get it working. Good luck, and hope this helps.
