I saw a lot of those parts when my 17-85 hit the pavement after falling out of my backpack

NECRO-THREAD!

Normally I dont zombie old threads, however.....

Just finished fixing/replacing my 17-85 aperture. I thought it would be helpful to have all links related to fixing this problem.

http://www.pfcgroot.nl/photography/68-canon-lens-aperture-flex-cable-replacement.html

http://www.doekle.nl/canon_17_85_IS_repair.html

But...all of the above methods involve removing the front element assembly, which is not necessary. That method involves being careful to reassemble for proper focusing alignment.

Heres the method I used...

Using the above method, it took me a little more than an hour. Not bad for someone thats never disassembled an AF lens before, and no worries about focus alignment.

I will try to convert that page into a PDF file to host on my dropbox, should the link ever go dead.
