Polaroid Onestep Close Up Primary Lens Replacement

Replace the primary imaging lens.

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.
