I just saw that yout Thread has no replies. I only know the Minolta A-2 from pictures so I can't be much help. There is only one screw visible. I would guess that there are more screws hidden under the leather-patch in the middle of the bottom plate. Also it might be possible to unscrew the tripod-mount and the film counter wheel.

Good luck!
