How can this be easy, but the Blu-Ray drive be considered Moderate? You need to complete the Blu-Ray drive removal prior to replacing the laser lens, which means this is at best a Moderate task.

This is not lens replacement, this is drive replacement. Is there a separate guide for lens replacement?

Shows how to do the laser assembly in the video but not how to reinstall it in the drive. Lazy guide. Just buy a whole new drive if you are following this guide.
