I know it's a long shot, but...

I'm looking to clean the haze out of my 2.8cm f/6.3 Hektor, but I'm a little hesitant to just start unscrewing rings and elements left and right.

I assume the rear group is held in place with the most inner ring on the back.

Anyone got any tips or a proper walk-through?

To help anyone with the same question:

NobbySparrow on Ebay offers a manual on "How to clean old Leica Lenses".
Several LTM lenses are featured in it, including this lens.

He also sells tools like ring clamps in various sizes to help with the disassembly.
