Need help to repair Takumar SMC 85-210

Hi fellas! I've been lurking the forums, reading and learning. I recently bought a "Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR-Zoom 1:4.5/ 85~210" Well, that's what it says on the front. It is also an m42 screw mount. My problem is that there are a few specs of dust or lint inside the lens, and I need to crack it open to repair it. There seems to be no instructions anywhere on how to open it for repairs. Anyone have any ideas? Does it open the same way as the other Takumar 50mm?
