How to remove eyecup?

I'm just trying to clean my view finder, but I can't seem to remove the eyecup, the instructions aren't very clear. Anyone know how? (K-X) and should I clean it with a lens brush?

The viewfinder isn't that delicate so a microfiber cloth is fine. I've used my t shirt in a pinch before. It's pretty hard to scratch it. The viewfinder rubber piece can be pulled off, literally. It won't break.

Unlike some of the older Pentax DSLRs it does just simply pull off, not slide up. I just tried mine (first time), it got suck a little at the bottom but a bit of tugging had it released. Be careful that your cloth is clean, be gentle and don't over do it. The finder has plastic lenses and does scratch easily contrary to other posters comments and when it's scratched it's really quite annoying.
