Spotmatic II loose strap lug question

I have a spotmatic II that is a bit, er, rough. It seems to work properly, but the stap lug on the winder side of the camera is loose. Does anybody know an easy way to "tighten" it?

I don't know of an easy mechanical fix. The screw can only be reached by pulling the top plate.

This is true. I had the same problem with a Spottie a couple of years ago, corrected in the course of a CLA. when the top plate was removed for access.

Hmm... How hard is it to get the top plate off?

I've taken a couple off of old cameras and it wasn't too bad either time.
The shutter button, and wires going to the hotshoe were the only things I really had to watch out for.
