How much to fix broken plastic lens mount?



Has anyone had a broken plastic kit lens mount replaced?

Who by?
How much?

Or is it possible to buy the mount as a spare part and DIY?

Thanks!!

I broke a mount.

I sent the lens for repair.

I refused the price of the repair.

I bought a reversing ring and a new lens.

I would say replace the lens as the kit ones are inexpensive enough and the repair probably near the same price, or more.
