Nikon Lens Mount Repair - Instructables
Several of the cheaper "kit" lenses offered by Nikon have plastic mounts.

I recently replaced the mount after I managed to break off one of these tabs (I was clumsy and dropped my D40x about 6 inches, onto a carpeted surface).

I got mine from Nikon usa for about 17 dollars including shipping. The part was just the plastic, so I had a bit more work to do with reattaching the spring loaded part, oh and I broke the wire too, which meant a dab of solder to fix but all is now good and the lens is working perfectly again. Out of curiosity I'm wondering if I can use the boyonet mount from one lens to another. Half way the repair the lens came apart further than I indented, but fortunately that was fixed by unplugging the ribbon cable from the Auto/Manual focus switch and unscrewing it, fitting the plastic ring again, and plugging/screwing the button back.

Please take note of the screw, brass plate and chrome mounting post in the left side of the first photo. I removed these and used the existing ones instead. Ordered the part on ebay UK, posted from Portugal to Germany (where I am) free of charge (good old EU! One of my AIS lens mount for 105mm lens mount is screwed up and wondering if I can replace that mount using an e Bay as is 50mm AIS lens. In short some frehting moments, but I got it in the end : D.
