You're either have to send to someone for repair or invest in screw extractors and extractor drill bits.

Moody Screw Extractor & Screw- driver, Mini, Aluminum, 6 Pc ? Micro-Tools
Left Hand Drill Bit 0.8mm (screw extractor) ? Micro-Tools

The most commonly used screw size on Pentax equipment is M1.5 (1.5mm diameter). Length depends on the application but you can measure one of the other screws. Moody Tools will sell the extractors singly - try them direct or on eBay. Search the internet for "micro screws" or Pentax forums for links to several sources of M1.5 screws.

If the lens is used it is possible a previous owner attempted a fix and stripped the screws out and glued them. If that's the case the only repair alternative is to drill off the screw heads, drill out the old screws and re-tap the threads. Usually with a larger diameter say 2mm.

Or just buy another copy of the lens.
