    How to remove Lubitel 166u Shutter

    I have a lubitel with a broken diaphragm, however I am stuck about how to get to it.

    The aperture blades have dislodged, and I can see there is a plastic(?) retaining ring from the film side that seems to be glued.

    I am a bit apprehensive about trying to use solvent there.

    Has anyone got experience with getting to the aperture blades? The Lubitel seems to be fairly disassembly unfriendly.

    Once I fix it up I'll give to a digi-friend to try her hand with film. Hopefully another convert.

    Do you mean the c-ring around the rear glass element?
