How do you remove the plastic plate in front of the exposure wheel? I see it in step 6 under the lens but not in the photos for step 7 and it seems to be blocking a tab in step 8. Thanks!

  • To replace the shutter pieces in the camera, first make sure they are in the proper order.

  • The shutter piece at the bottom of the first picture belongs on the bottom.

  • The shutter piece in the middle of the first picture goes in the middle (second picture).

  • The shutter piece at the top of the first picture goes on top (third picture).

  • By looking at the first picture, line up the long, skinny slots on the three shutter pieces.

  • In the second picture, notice the pin inside the circle.

  • Line up the slots in the shutters with the pin inside the camera as shown in the third picture.

  • NOTE: The shutter pieces are not included in the first two pictures of this step because they slide around too easily for us to take pictures with them in the camera.

  • Put black plastic piece back into camera, making sure to slide tab into slot (rectangle) and onto the pin (circle).

  • Final assembly for this step should look like the third picture.

  • CAUTION: The next two steps are incredibly difficult!

  • First, you must align the tab (circled) with the slot (rectangle).

  • Do not put pieces together until after reading the next step!!!

  • REMINDER: This step is very difficult and may require multiple attempts.

  • Align teal and orange circled tabs from the first picture with the respective teal and orange holes in the shutter pieces.

  • After the shutter mechanism is placed into the camera, make sure all three shutter pieces are attached correctly.

  • NOTE: When correctly attached, the shutter pieces will slide in opposite directions when the shutter mechanism is rotated.

  • To finish putting the Polaroid back together, follow steps 9 through 1 in reverse.
