What are steps to remove the flange from lens?

Hello!
My apologies for resurrecting this post but...

I've got one of these with the flange exactly as pictured above. I don't wnat to mess with the flange while it's still attached to the lens.

Can someone walk me through how to remove this flange? Which screws need to be removed and what do I not do or watch out for so I don't botch it?

I'd love to be able to use this with my K200d. Wanted to use it last night for some moon shots, but alas
thx much!

Thank you sir-
with my impatience, I figured it out by brute force. Essentially I removed the 3 radial screws and out come the black flange. If that didn't work, there were 4 screws that I could see which were mounted on the lens mount flange also.

I'll check the DPR post shortly. For now, I'll leave this flange off the lens.
