You have to be more specific as to what is wrong with the drive and what it is that you want to repair.

Here is the removal guide for the 360 drive, but like Majesty said we need more info. Some problems are fixable without replacement.

If you do want to replace the drive, you should search eBay for Xbox 360 replacement drives.

EDIT:

Our guide does not cover all replacement procedures. The drives are tagged in the firmware to each machine, and changing that firmware is illegal, thus we can't show you how to do it.

Okay, just a note here. The DVD drive is KEYED, via inboard firmware, to each console. This encryption key prevents the games from being copied and the copy being played on the console. The key can be read and reflashed back on to a new drive but one cannot just pop the old drive out and pop a new drive in, in order to fix DVD issues.
