Need help repairing a lens

OK its not a pentax lens, its a Nikor.

My dad gave me his nikon N2020 and a couple of lenses. One of them is broken

it is an AF Nikor 70-210mm f4-5.6 slide zoom

Now, I want to find the exploded view of this lens before i start to rip it apart. do you know where one is?
It came to me the way you see it here.

His request to me is that I repair the lens myself and continue to learn how to repair camera stuff. (yeah right, in the digital age....)

but anyway, im going to do this. i just want to start with an exploded view before i get into this....

thanks for reading this. and especially thanks if you can help me in finding an online exploded view of this lens.

Not sure you need an explided view any more, lens seems to have taken care of that for you.

I don't know what you can do, perhaps try a small camera repair shop. But if this just "came apart" I would be willing to bet there is a single limit screw that came loose, the problem is getting all the allignment correct to fit this back together.

I was thinking that too 8D

I need to disassemble the front element, and before I go any farther, I want the exloded view just to be safe.

I would take it to a repair shop, but my dad gave it to me and he has requested that I repair it myself. I think he wants me to learn the craft of camera repair.

the only thing is....for me its not going to happen in the digital age...but im happy to try it on analogue...
