Nikon's response:

Dear Mr. Cummings,
Thank you for contacting Nikon Service and Support,
According to the service center the parts which were no longer available for this repair have been listed below. We do apologize for any inconvenience. I hope this information will be helpful.
RUBBER RING & M/F RING
Regards,

Talk about detailed information, this is pathetic! How can these parts be related to a lens that will no longer autofocus? I'm trying to get additional info from them. In the mean time, APS says they can repair anything on this lens. I'm sure I will be sending it to them, but I'd like to get "detailed" and useful information from Nikon support first. Very disappointing from a company with such a long and reputable history. What a waste of my time and money. They new that they no longer have parts for this lens, so why did they have me send it to them for repair?

APS repaired mine 2 years ago for a failed focusing mechanism. Great customer service and the lens arrived back at my door one week from the day I shipped it out.
