What go pro do you have? You might be able to find parts on eBay

which model is it you've got? Some lenses can be changed very easily, others need to completely strip the camera down

I have the hero 3 black and it looks like the only way to get the lens out is to take the whole camera apart. I was referred
to ragecams from a friend of mine who had the same problem and when I called them they said they could replace it for me for 79$ total. So I'm sending my camera to them tomorrow and I will let you know when I get it back if they did a good job. Has anyone ever heard of that company before?

yeh, the Hero 3 has a collar upto the edge of the lens so have to take it apart. That's not a bad price considering how complex they are internally The 3+ has a lower collar so can get onto it with pliers to release the lens
