How to unscrew very tight screws in a Ricoh GR

I have followed the instructional video to get rid of dust and I am stuck on the last 3 screws, the ones with springs under them. Tried till my hands were raw last night and have since been looking on YouTube and Google for answers, but to no avail. I tried tightening them to loosen them. I even tried leaving it in the fridges for 2 hours. I feel like adding WD-40 oil would be a bad idea.

Anyone got any tips please? I just have small screwdrivers at the moment but will be back home with pliers and other tools in a few days.
