That's why disassembling, cleaning and reassembling is preferred. If only blade mechanism is affected - i.e. shutter with removed blades works well - the whole procedure is quite easy and you don't have to disassemble the whole cocking and clock-work mechanism containing bazillion of elements. Of course - to determine this you have to partially dissemble the shutter, and if you do, there in no reason not to clean it. In my case (Compur #2) blades were accessible from the rear.
