Dropped my 24-70 f2.8, focus problem help...

Hi guys, I dropped my Canon 24-70 AKA "The Brick!" on the floor! Zoom got stiffer and focus stopped working.

I played with the focus ring a bit and it started working, but as soon as I touch it and try to manually focus, it gets stuck. The focus, NOT the focus ring. Basically it works 50% of the time.

Focus ring is fine, and I could live with the stiff focus, but I cannot live with the non reliable focus system.

Question is: is there a way I can open it and fix the focus issue? Any youtube video I can watch? Or forget it and just send it for repair?

IQ did not suffer, still fine.

Thanks guys !
