Parts Source: Lens on IR Emitter of LG G3

Does anyone know of a source for a replacement for the little (tiny, miniscule even) lens that covers the IR LED emitter on the top of the G3? I was swapping mid-frames and as I was removing the lens my tweezers got hung up, and when they released, the lens sprung away (never to be seen again).

Everything still works, but the open hole is one more vector that moisture can enter the phone body.

Am I looking at the potentially having to harvest it off of a parts phone?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The first mid frame I bought came with this, but my second and current frame didn't. As luck would have it (bad luck, that is) for me, the old one crumbled upon removal, and I couldn't locate one online or anywhere. It's a pain, but what I did was, I found an old T.V remote, removed it's lense and carved a new one from it with a hobby knife. (Make sure to lightly heat the tip of the hobby knife. It helps when cutting such a small piece) Then put it in place with super glue. Worked like a charm. Hope this helps.

Heat the tip of the hobby knife, not hear. Lol (Thanks again Auto-Correct)
