So I did it! The plastic things were more than easy to remove...like 1 sec each...

First I turned the screws 45 degrees anticlockwise which worsened the back focus.

Then I turned them 90 degrees clockwise which resulted in a slight front focus. I started to fiddle around in small increments and finally I was happy. Very very easy and galactically better than the useless AF I had before. However I just considered the center AF point which is the one I usually use. I'll try my SP90 tomorrow. I'll try the other AF points as well but for now I'm happy and I feel like having have a new camera...well an AF camera...:)

The least super easy part was to get the plastic things back. Took me a good 10-50 secs each time.

Big thanks to the excellent advice posted in this thread and many others.
