Did mine a couple of years ago. It's a bit fiddly but definitely feasible. Take care when putting it back together as I didn't get it quite right & af switch jammed on me in Iceland, so had to disassemble & jiggle it a bit to get it right. Been going strong ever since.

Important advice about the AFS-C-M switch!

If you read my tutorial for the repair of the K30:
Manual solenoid replacement Pentax K30 / Discharge flash-condenser / Solenoid choice - PentaxForums.com
you'll find exact instructions how to position the inner part of this switch and the outer part, because if one doesn't check this (and one should, because the inner part moves very easely) and you find out after assembly that the switch is jammed: Good extra work ahoy!
