I watched the video just now, and have a couple of comments.I appreciate all of your help and suggestions.
1. While the person marked the position of the body to the table, he did not mark the position of the lens carrier. The lens MUST be inserted in exactly the same position as it was before, or the image will be decentered. Mark the lens carrier to body!!
2. The person did not mention that you need a proper screwdriver to avoid damaging the screw heads, they look like Phillips, but they are JIS and a JIS screwdriver with magnetic tip can keep you from damaging things.
3. Use a plastic or wood tool to remove the ring on the front of the lens. Its just asking for trouble to use a metal screwdriver. A toothpick should work.
These were more or less the same instructions from the LensRentals blog earlier this year:
I just did the dust clean out, and it literally took me less than five minutes.
