Hi @bravestoke8443

 

Remove the protective lens and wipe it with a clean cloth.

  1. Hold on to camera securely in the palm of one hand, and use your dominant hand to grip the Protective Lens. 
  2. Pull the Protective Lens away from the camera body slightly (≈1mm) and rotate counter-clockwise. NOTE: There will be some resistance during this process due to the water-tight gasket below the Protective Lens. If the Protective Lens fails to rotate at this stage, you may need to vary the amount that you are pulling the lens outward. 
  3. Once rotated 45°, remove the Protective Lens by pulling it away from the camera body. 
  4. Take care to keep debris and fingerprints off of the interior (rounded) lens. 

Replace the protective lens.

  1. Ensure that interior lens is free of debris. Only if necessary, clean with a soft, lint-free cloth or lens pen. NOTE: We do not recommend the use of any liquid or solvent when cleaning the interior lens. 
  2. Check for any debris on the waterproof gasket, and clean the Protective Lens if necessary.
  3. Mount the Protective Lens on the camera at a 45° angle. TIP: When looking at the camera from the front, one of the shorter sides of the Protective Lens should be facing the upper-right corner of the camera. 
  4. With even pressure, press the Protective Lens onto the camera body and rotate clockwise, 45°. Stop rotating the Protective Lens when it is aligned with the camera body. 
  5. Check to ensure that the gap between the Protective Lens and camera body is even, not exceeding ≈1mm on any of the four sides. 

Though not officially from GoPro, you may refer to this video on how to remove the protective lens.
