Any experience removing the front element for cleaning?

My lens has few dry water spots inbetween the two sandwiched front elements. I don't feel like paying $209.00 for a simple clean up job. If anyone here has any experience with teardowns. Please guide me on steps to remove the element from the plastic ring.
