Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 85mm F1.8 problem

Hallo PU's

Have some of you ever tried to open such a lens?

I have a sample which can wobble between mount and the focus ring / front element.

Can i do something to solve this problem?

The usual way is to unscrew the front ring, the one with 'SMC Takumar' etc on it

Hallo again

I found this video:

can i expect a similar approach?

It is not only the front element that wobbles, it feels like it's the entire barrel, the moves back and forth when you focus, that wobbles.
