Its a fully sealed assembly. You won't be able to take it apart and put it all back together again. You'll end up breaking pieces trying to take it apart. Chances are a gear in the assembly is stripped and you'd be hard pressed to find a replacement for it. Check around ebay and see if you can find a replacement lens assembly or busted camera of the same model that still have a good lens assembly on it. This is just one of the growing number of consumer products that where never designed to be serviceable.
