Before trying to slide the front (which carries the whole works) out of the case, remove the battery cover and the film chamber cover. And also the small lever for opening the film chamber. The nut holding it is underneath a small felt cover on the lever itself. You will need a slotted screwdriver for this nut.
Before removing the little nut under the felt pad on the cover release, make sure you slide off the back cover completely. Also, a useful tool is to take an old jewelers screwdriver & grind out a center slit on the blade, to facilitate grabbing the nut in question, since sometimes the threaded portion of the stud extends beyond the reach of the flat blade. Grinding a set of bent long nose pliers to a point makes a good wrench for removing those threaded rings that have the 2 pins. A cheap way is to bend open a paperclip into a "U" shape and grab laterally with a plier once set in the holes. (prone to slip & scratch though....caveat repairor!!)
