Need to be careful not to pull the flash bits as well.

My rear camera lens cover stack fell off. The flash array, the two cameras and the sensors on the right are in place. The rubber 'rings' around the flash and sensors are gone and everything above them is gone.

How do I get all of the pieces?

Is it called a “lens cover stack" or something like that?
