Help! new

I dropped my Etx 80 on the ground last nights. Something happened inside and the objective lens assembly slides out. I know that it is supposed to be attached to a plastic ring inside. Does anyone know how to remove the the long focusing screw inside, so I can reattach the lens assembly and put it back in. Any links would be great. Thanks.

I need some instructions like this, but for the ETX 80.

They are essentially the same. The 80 has a gear assembly at the back the moves the focusing knob to the top next to the eyepiece.
