Well, if they are US Market binoculars, they would have a lifetime warranty.  If they are not, they would have a 30 year warranty from Germany.  Either way you would need to send them back to Zeiss.  There would probably be no charge other than shipping.  You would have to contact them for specifics.

I jsut got off the phone with Kristen from Zeiss Optical and she said that anything that is user wear was not covered eg. worn eye cups or replace the lens's, or jsut normal wear and tear,  but if dust gets inside, or they have to realign the lens's  then they would fix for nothing, plus shipping,  I thanked her for the call and I doubt I'll send them in for a refurbish job, I'm only guessing but I suppose the refurbish job would cost almost as much as  new pair. So so much for lifetime warrenty and I was told it is "lifetime Limited warrenty"

You can try Redlich binocular repair. He just did some 12x50 Dodecarems for me at a very resonable price. Cleaned one prism and collimated for $127. Do an internet search.
