Spotmatic Film winder mechanism.

Have been staring at the Part --see photo-- trying to figure out, how to remove it, and also if is even movable from above !.
Just need the top area, that the wind on lever notches into.

Appears to have screws , but if in fact they are screws, they're fastened from underneath ?

Really would like to hear from someone who might know. Thank you all.

I don't know whether it will help but a copy of the spotmatic service manual is available here: Pentax Manuals

Good luck.

Fred.

Thanks Fred, I do have that Manual. Maybe I'm a little more Dumb than usual, as it seems to highlight assembly and seems to skip over what I consider relevant. I'm checking the "special Tools" to see if it somehow is removable by using one of those mentioned.
