Who can fix my Vivitar Series 1 70-210 ver.3???

Got a good deal on a Komine Vivitar Series 1 70-210. All it needed was the barrel slack/mount tightened up. Well, after reading the repair instructions on this particular and common problem, I of course f'd things up and some little tiny coil spring came loose and is now distorted & unusable. That, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to even get the bayonet mount off now to even finish the job. Anyone else who can help in this D&R or know someone to send it to fir repair?

Well...........I gave up out of fear I might break something that can't be fixed. If anyone knows a good repair shop, let me know. Otherwise it's going to become my new paperweight.
