Is it possible to replace just the lens without taking off the back cover? Like can I just use a suction tool to pull off the broken lens and put in the new one?

Yes, that is possible!

I am wondering the same thing. I believe it would work. Don't see the need in pulling the back cover to replace a piece of exposed glass.

Yes. It can be done. I did it using a hair dryer to warm the lens and peel if off gently, starting in one corner. If it seems reluctant to come off you may need to heat it a little more. Be careful not to damage to outer metal ring (as I did) and then replace the glass lens as described.
