Possible to change focussing screen in SP1000?

I know it's possible to remove the screen in a pentax sp1000, but is there a simpler way of doing it then having to take off the top part of the camera?

Actually, I would prefer to not remove the screen, but I want to get at a piece of foam that's intruding into the viewfinder area. It seems somebody once changed the foam behind the focussing screen, overlapped by a fair bit and just left it hanging there.

This camera is in great condition, very clean viewinder, but for this.

The top and prism have to come off to remove the screen.
