How to clean shutter release button?

Hello. I bought used GR (V). But shutter release button works very interesting. No autofocus by half-press and long shutter release by full-press. I guess it is very dirt inside it. Autofocus does not work by shutter release button (it just work by round button on back panel inside ael/afl/c-af).

Maybe setup menu has some function for stop autofoces by half-press?

It sounds like it's set for "Back Focus" there should be a option in the menu to reset it to half-press on the shutter button. I don't believe that shutter release is dirty inside.

Back-focus - is wrong autofocus of DSLR. My GR didn't use autofocus by half-press. Maybe you know where in the menu this option ?
