Does a repair manual for the digital K-x exist anywhere online?

I'm going to make a stab at fixing my K-x myself, but would really like some sort of guide/outline before tackling this.

I basically need to get into the guts of the shutter and pull a suspected bit of gunk out from the works of the gears (I have a 1 1/2 year old, I suspect he had his mitts on the camera or a lens which I didn't pre-check before mounting).

Costs to send it in for repairs would be prohibitive. The way I see it, is the worst case scenario is my camera remains broken if I fail, but I'd like to at least not make things worse if possible in going in here.

Here is a link to a K10D service manual. It won't be the same, but it might help you outline your strategy:
