The rear facing camera lens is mounted in the phones mid frame. You can follow the step-by-step guides on this site to access the phones mid frame to remove the old lens cover. The lens cover is held in place with some adhesive so you might have to pry the old one out. The replacement lens covers usually come with the adhesive so all you will have to do is just put the new one in with the adhesive supplied. You can also purchase the whole midframe piece that already has the camera lens installed. Hope this information is useful to you and best of luck with your repair. You can find either part online through numerous retailers such as eBay, Amazon, and many more.
