Bessa R4m

I recently acquired myself a R4M and there's some dust in the viewfinder that I would like to blow out.

Anyone have any info on how to get the top plate off or have done it themselves before? Now this is not the first camera I've ever taken apart so I'm fairy familiar with how top plates usually come off but before I attempt to do it blind I figured I'd ask on here for any info.

I know there are screws under the advance lever which takes that off. Are there screws under the front leather which need to be removed? Also I imagine that the frame line selector comes off once off along with the top plate? Same with the little lever which you hold to pull up the rewind lever to open the film door.

Thanks for anyone that can offer any info.

I doubt R4M is different.
