I'm looking for help that will allow me to get into the lens of a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 (TZ7) to remove dust.
So far I have stripped the camera down to where I have removed the lens/sensor module from the camera and I'm able to remove the sensor from the module but I don't know how to get into the lens to fix the problem.
Below is a photo of the problem I need to fix.
Any experts?

Cheers,
Tom.

Do the dust speckles ruine your photos? Almost 99% of the lenses have after a period dust inside, but it isnt visible at all in the photo!

I've decided not to bother after reading this article so it's all back together.

Just to wrap this up, I found a superb guide on Youtube that will no doubt help those with my camera or those with similar models.
I now have a perfectly clean camera front to back.
