    Can't really figure what you're talking about. Maybe you can take a picture of it to show us.

    Considering how cheap this lens is... I think you may be better off buying a new one as I suspect the repair costs may come up to a figure close to that of a new one...

    Try using it to shoot and see if it still works.

    It can't be repaired.
    I dun think there's any screw u can unscrew to open it.

    Put it back together and use it as a inverted close up lens +20?

    Other way, you can call Canon service center and hear their opinion. Is it under warranty?

    Don't think Canon warranty covers damage caused by dropping.
