Yes, it is in the tube. I'll try what you've suggested. Thanks.

Professionals have like a sucker on a stick to remove elements like this.

I was actually trying to decide if a piece of chewed chewing gum on a stick would work. The residue left by the gum could be easily cleaned off.

You can get these at your local auto parts store and they work great for removing lenses. They're valve lapping suction tools, cost around $7.00

Thanks Oldbayrunner. I'll check at my favorite auto parts store. They should have them in stock.

I got the other piece out just by tapping in the palm of my hand and got the other piece cleaned up. Am now attempting to reassemble the lens. Thanks everyone for your help with this, I appreciate it!

EDIT: Bayrunner, I need to see that photo you had up but is now missing how the lenses are aligned. Could you repost that? I can't remember how the outer element fits into the tube. LOL

Thanks. I hope I got it right but if not, I know now I can take it out and turn it over and redo it.

I couldn't sketch anything, I have a hard time drawing a straight line with my shaky hands.

I put a fingerprint on the side that faces out. Because I'll probably touch it accidentally anyway, probably clean that surface anyway while assembling.

Well, that's an idea, but I was trying to keep them clean. Anyway, I checked it tonight the outer piece and it's not cleaned so I have to take it all apart again, clean it again, and hopefully get all the haze off this time.

Got it all cleaned and reassembled to find I have lost one of the tiny black screws. Would hurt anything have just two screws in or should I try to find another screw. The two that are in, are one, near the lever and the opposite side of that one.

On the mount??? if so it is better to have all of them otherwise the other two could strip loose with the weight of the lens...Been there

PICs please

The black screws around the light shield? They aren't important. If you have a rare earth magnet from an old hard drive or something, it will do a good job sucking screws and bearings out of the carpet pile.
