How much dust is there? Most of the time it's better to have some dust than scratching something. Could you take a picture to show us?
If there is severe dust inside, the only solution is to open the tube to clean the corrector, so it better be worth it!

Matt and The Belly are right about leaving well enough alone, but if you're reffering to the M603 in your other post, they do have a reputation for loose metal fines in the tube. Unlike a little (or a lot) of actual dust, metal fines can be a problem in the long run. One of the reasons I went with the MK66 instead of the M603 is that the MK66 is perfectly clean inside. I suppose a 66 can have this problem too, but there are less reports of it.
If it turns out to be a real issue after all is said and done, Mike at ITE can clean it for you (and check out the optics as well).
