Sand in Sony RX100 markIII

Hi all,

I have a SONY RX100 mark III that I love and got in 2016. I accidentally drop in on the beach and since then, it objective makes a weird sound when getting out and zooming. I suspect some sand being in the lens segments/parts.

I wanted to send it back to SONY to get it cleaned but they are asking for minimum 350$. A new one is 600 now, I TBH, I am wondering if it worth the costs is they end up asking for more. I was wondering if there is any other options here, like, could I clean it/open it myself? What would be the things to pay attention too? Any other tip? The camera is completely fine otherwise, photos come out clean and sharp and the camera is in good condition.

Thanks for your help!
