Rear camera glass popped clean off

I recently got a new Google pixel 3 a couple weeks ago and bought a new case for it aswell. One day i was playing basketball and it came out of my pocket and it dropped on the concrete. Now it was dark outside so it was hard to tell if anything happened to the camera but after I came back in I noticed that the camera glass was missing. The camera housing is fine the camera works as well as it did right out of the box and the glass surrounding it is fine, no cracks or anything. Does anyone know how what kind of things Google would do to fix this kind of thing and how much it would cost to get it repaired. I've read that it they would have to take the whole back of the phone off and replace it with a new one but I don't think this would be true especially since it just a small piece of glass covering the camera.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I personally haven’t tried replacing the rear camera lens on this model but I can’t imagine it’d be more difficult than installing it into the bracket after cleaning all previous adhesive from it. I can tell you from experience its most common that you do not have to remove the back or any other component from the phone to replace that lens.

Do you have any idea of how much it would cost because I couldn't find any replacements on this site or even anywhere else, I can find replacements for the 2xl and the cost of those are about 8 or 9 dollars at most. Thanks for the answer btw
