Default Kinshofer KM04F rotator repair

Hi, has anyone ever taken a Kinshofer KM04F rotator to pieces?

Mine is weeping oil and seemed a good idea to find out why, but how do you get them to pieces? Obviously the ring of cap screws hold the parts together, but how do you rotate the flange in order to get a hex key onto the screw heads?

There are a couple of blanking plugs plus four plastic hole fillers. Do the plugs release the oil inside allowing free rotation? Bit reluctant to try in case several litres of oil spray everywhere, like to be ready!

Has anyone ever seen maintenance instructions? The Kinshofer web site doesn't even recognise the model number.

Thanks

Solved!

Kinshofer came back to me and emailed a pdf service and parts book, really nice of them. But buying a service repair kit of seals cost near 180!
