Stuck at first hurdle

Hello all.

I have a Pentax SV and I want to remove the top plate of the camera. The film advance lever and connected items are stopping me. I removed a Spotmatic 500 lever mechanism easily a couple of years ago, but the SV is a different design. I have got a manual, but it only shows parts. I have taken the cover and counter disc off and come to a halt. Does anyone know how to proceed or where I can find out more?
