lens will not extract or retract

Lens on Nikon Coolpix L18 will not extract or retract. I hear the motor running but no movement of lens. Lens cover does work when gears are manipulated by hand. I have the camera disassembled and need some guidance to open correct part of the lens housing to fix mechanics of its movements.

I thank you in advance for your advice.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too
