Focus ring removed. This is how the camera looks with the right lens assembly cover removed, ribbon cables disconnected and zoom/focus ring removed. Note that the front lens is now exposed, so you have to be careful not to scratch it (that's why I prefer to keep the zoom ring on) .
Remove lens assembly. The lens assembly can now be removed (gently angle and pull out) from the camera shell. There is some plastic insulation material between the back of the lens assembly and the camera (ribbon cables). Make sure to put it back in the right place during assembly.
Empty camera shell. This is how the camera looks with the lens assembly removed you can now better see the location/direction of the ribbon cables (K and L blue, M, N, Q1, Q2 brown).
