This lens is what focuses the light on the mirror, and by extension the film, when taking photos. The shutter lies directly behind it. It is very easy to replace, as it only requires the removal of the front plate to access, and is held in place only by grooves into which it snaps into place. This guide will illustrate how to remove this primary lens.

Step 1 — Primary Lens ¶
Once the front assembly is removed, the primary lens should be exposed without any trouble.
Step 2 — Removal of primary lens ¶
Use your spudger to leverage the lens from the groove at the top (red).
Pry the lens loose. It may pop out, so have a method in place to prevent it from dropping.
