Ok, how to remove screws from a Pentax-M lens?!?

I've decided to start working on my pentax-m 15mm 3.5 during the half term. It has one element with fungus problem, so i just need to open it up, clean it, then reassemble it. I've taken apart my 50mm 1.4 before but i dont have a clue how i tackled the damn screws. i think i ended up using a vice and some pliers

I just tried Acetone in case it was held together with some sort of glue, but it wont budge.

Anyone got any idea for a good way to do this? I am using some annoyingly small screwdrivers which is part of the problem. Also if anyone can find any pentax 15mm servicing guides that would also be useful.

At the moment the lens is close to unuseable, it is very misty around the edges of the frame.
This is what im looking at:
