Pentax-A 35mm 2.8

Hi
Just picked up a SMC-Pentax-A-35mm-F2.8-Lens very very cheap...

The glass is clear, unscrached... Aperture ring is snappy... No oil that I can see on blades... A-setting works flawlessly... Lens is sharp and produces nice image...

However...

The focus ring is very very stiff... At times there is a kind of grinding feeling to it...

Is there an easy fix or am I looking at a small fortune to repair?

I made a stuck focus ring on A 2/50 move like it was new. It's rather simple and quick fix if you know what you're doing and have that tiny screwdriver (PH000 or PH00). I don't think the A 3.5/28 is too different.

Here's a link that helped me.
