Anyone know hot to dismantle the front focus group of a tamron 17-50 2.8 that appear sealed in plastic? I managed to introduce some liquid speck between the first elements.

You may need to wait some time as the question is a rather specialized subject rather than general photographic. Welcome to the forums, someone should be able to help you.

On my old bridge camera panasonic fz20 because the same reason...some water smearing under first lens element...the only method that I discovered to separate that group of front lens (very similar to the tamron group) was to tear off the small plastic ridge that hold the lens and after that I manage to remove the lens from group...I hope that maybe is another better method for same result on my 17-50 2.8 tamron lens.
I think maybe some heating the plastic frame? will help...?
