Glad to help. I actually fixed my C3 as well....... I think. I Googled Argus C3 and from the assorted sites I was able to figure out how to re-set the focus and also fix my shutter speed selector which I don't believe was working correctly. I'm shooting a roll of film in it now to see if it really worked. Thanks for the inspiration!! Fingers crossed.

My C3 came with the owner's manual. They explain how to remove and re-attach the lens. I'd be happy to scan if if you'd like.

I had a hard time getting the idler gear cover off, turns out the focus ring was stuck and all I was doing was slightly unscrewing the lens from the body. Once I got the lens off I was able to work it free again.

I cleaned the lenses and a bit of the body to spruce the camera up and it's good to go.

Thanks for your help.
