bumping up this thread simply to add my experience. I bought two GIII both of them as "working condition", both of them with sticky shutter. I tried to contact a professional repair shop, but they discouraged me saying the labor is way higher that the market value of the camera. So I have two "dead cameras" I can sacrifice to the science. In regards to the central group I tried any method but the space is really narrow and none of my lens spanners can go there. So the idea: rather than drill holes, or buy additional tools, I simply decided to create two dents on the ring retaining the lens gently hammering down a flat screw driver. Voila, now I can use my lens spanner.
