Removing top on ME Super

Hi, hope I got this in the right place.

I found two cameras at my parents place, one ME and one ME super.

The ME Super is not working at all at the moment; it seems like something got stuck somewhere and the mirror is always up.
I figured it would be fun to take it apart at see if I find out what's wrong with it, but at the moment I can't get the top off.
The problem is the nut under the rewinder knot holding the asa-plate.

A MINUTE amount of oil picked up on a pin and just touched will help as it looks very rusty and dry.
