Removing front element of A-series primes

I have done surgery on many old lenses, to clean them or fix stuck aperture blades, etc; oftentimes, with the old lenses you can simply unscrew a piece just below the filter threads and from there remove the front elements. Is this possible with any of the A-series prime lenses, or do you have to go through the rear mount to access any of the front elements?

Thanks,

Ryan

This is more for curiosity than anything else.

From what I have seen the process is the same but if you post the specific lens model and version (maybe including serial to help people narrow it down) you'll get a better answer.
