I was unable to figure out how to disassemble the wind lever, and when I went to look at the rangefinder window again, the film counter window piece had dislodged itself from view. Good to know I've got it in there, I guess. I'm still looking for a permanent solution to this, though the camera is functioning again normally. Even got in there for a quick RF alignment which helped gobs with focusing. Again, if anyone has any reliable information on how to properly remove the top cover, I'd be infinitely grateful. Thanks guys.
