Pentax k1000 focusing screen

Hello, just trying to find out how hard it is to replace the focusing screen on a k1000. I can't seem to find any straightforward information anywhere. The focusing screen looks ghastly through the viewfinder, and I thought it would be a relatively simple fix.

Another issue I'm having - the narrow foam strip inside is past-expired and I need to find out what it takes to replace that too. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the Pentax Forum!

The focusing screen on the K1000 is not user changeable. Eric Hendrickson can do the procedure and give your camera a CLA at the same time.

Here is Eric’s link
