Stuck focus ring (Pentax-A 50mm F/1.7

Just got this lens today and I was curious if anyone had any advice regarding a stuck focus ring. I can't move it at all. I am good with my hands and have taken other lenses apart, so I don't mind taking a shot at this one.

Hope this helps

This seems to be a common problem for the A 50mm F 1.7.
There was a thread about it sometime back that offers a solution:

I fixed mine, so it isn't that difficult a fix

Stuck aperture is typical - stuck focus I have not heard of.

Ya - that thread is for a stuck aperture, not a stuck focus ring. Anyone else?;-)

Guess, I didn't read the question well enough.
