It is not a major job. I've replaced a few now, though I haven't found a good source for screens other than dead receivers on ebay. Work in a clean place. Take the screws off of the back, including the ones under the battery cover. Locate the ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board. Use the tip of the screwdriver to gently slide the plastic locking bar over, and then the ribbon will easily slide out. If the ribbon doesn't readily come out, you probably didn't get the bar correct. You may have to pull gently to pop the old screen off. Put the replacement ribbon in and slide the locking bar back over, then put it all back together. Be careful and make sure that the gasket is properly seated before you tighten the screws.

As far as I know you can only get parts from magellan. The lenses are usually part of the display screen assembly in order to prevent condensation between the lense and the screen.  It is probably seald to the screen and may not be easy to replace.

Year old explorist 100 doesn't work anymore

Even though your sister has lost the receipt, many stores have the ability to look up purchases at the store provided she used a credit card. You can not do this over the phone. You will need to have your sister go to the store and ask them to look up her purchase with her credit card. If it is a recent purchase and still within the product warranty you may be able to get a replacement. Good luck.
