How to remove focusing ring on K50?

OK,

my K50 suffered malfunction and to fix it I need to remove the focusing ring.
I managed to unscrew the front element but can't go anywhere from there and I couldn't see way from the bottom either. I took off the bayonet, aperture ring, distance scale ring, unscrewed rear element and that's where I get stuck.
Any ideas how to proceed?

Regards
Peter

I guess it depends what you're trying to do, there. Some of these parts are designed for lens-spanners, and also sometimes you may find screws underneath the rubber of the focusing ring.
