Rollei 6000/SLX Lens Disassembly
Looks like there is no longer any factory service available for Rollei lenses (someone correct me if I am wrong).
I did not find much at all with an internet search for Rollei 6000/SLX lens repair information so I am posting this as a start. I think APUG has more popularity than the KYPhoto forum but maybe I'll post this there also http://www.kyphoto.com/cgi-bin/forum/discus.cgi .
I'll show how to open up an 80mm 2.8 Planar from the front and the rear.
From the rear:
Mark the bayonet for re-assembly (Sarpie marker comes off with isopropyl alcohol when finished).
Remove the silver screws around the perimeter of the bayonet ring (don't remove any of the black screws visible).

Use correct screw driver, don't strip the heads.
The ring comes off with wires attached at the back:
When you lift up the back you can see an additional set of black cross-head screws. Be careful working around these wires as the sharp edge of the flange can injure the insulation when separating the barrel.
After removing the screws the barrel separates. The PQ 80mm lens has one-less screw holding the assembly together.

There are three small cross-head screw holding a plastic baffle ring on the back of the rear group of elements. Remove these screws and the ring slips off.

With the plastic ring removed, you may-or-may-not be able to unscrew the rear element. In this case it came off without a lens wrench.
This lens had an oily foggy lens surface on the rear-most group of the front elements. Easy to get to and clean in this case. The rest of the lens surfaces were OK in this case.
Disassembly from the FRONT:
The ring that says "Made in Germany by Rollei" will unscrew. I got this on off without a lens wrench using the rubber glove, therefore no marks.
The screw-in ring holds the bayonet assembly in place. When removing the bayonet assembly there will be 4 small springs exposed. These springs hold tension on the bayonet locking balls around the perimeter of the front bayonet ring.
