    I would like to use the spot meter again but the lenses need cleaning. I was not able to find a repair instruction and I simply, as stupit it sounds, can not open the meter, at the same time I do not like to destroy it. Any help
    is very much appreciated. Thanks.

    From Switzerland, Werner

    Many lenses will have a very thin ring surrounding the decorator ring at the front although there are some where the ring simply unscrews.

    This should give access to the inner and outer surface of the front and inner surface of the rear.
