Hello,
My Pentax MG has not been used for many years. I tried to checked for its functionality and work just fine, but I saw strange object in the viewfinder. It's like drop off a piece of metal-plate. I tried to find a service shop how can repair here but come out w no result. So, the only way is DIY, but how to open the top plate ?
Many thanks for the advice.

Maybe an onlinesearch for a manual will give the information you need.

I can usually get things apart if I just undo what I can see and bear in mind that sometimes things like the film advance knob is held on with a left hand thread but what is the real challenge for me is to get everything apart and back together without causing a lot of cosmetic damage.

Thanks John,

I just succeed to open the film wind lever but still got a "mystery" how to open the rewind lever where the ASA indicator located. Its looks so tricky and still can not found on internet.

Try this link: http://www.mypentax.com/PentaxMeSuper.html#button

I know it's for an ME Super - but they are probably very similar in construction.
