If you have a disfunctional Non-Folding Polaroid Camera (all models with square format use the same spare part) you can replace the torn "frog´s tongue" with a good one. The part ist held in place with a plastic retainer which can be unlocked from the insede. You see the locking tabs just behind the roller assembly. The most practical way is to remove the housing part from the roller assy by pushing it downwards beneath the rollers thus unlocking 2 metal tabs keeping the housing in place, thenmoving it forward away from the rollers. Then you can easily remove the Light Shield Retainer and excange the defetive one for a good unit. Reverse these procedures toremount the housing.

+ Further to my answer of jan 28 i found out that "impossible" https://www.the-impossible-project.com/ now offers replacement Light Shields of somewhat longer dimensions. This new part will protect the emerging pictures for any time the user deems necessary, it does not jump back at the end of the Ejection Cycle.
