It's a 5 minute job.
Here are some pictures:

Note: remove metal scrap/threading during the entire operation. You don't want to see these reaching any electronics.

Take out screws in the chassis (bottom cover: 4, top cover: 2)

Unplug lens control cable (right hand side).
Loosen the flex-cable connector (black compression clip).
Take out the bottom two screws so the front camera unit is easily accessible.

Here is the camera board.
Take out two black screws to remove IR-cut filter (from the front). Be careful on this operation so the screwdriver won't slip and damage electronic components.

Now put the camera back using the reverse order.

Now the front view of the camera board.
It is the same as SDC435 camera and is using ICX638 SuperHAD-II.

Clear Skies!

P.S. earlier ICX638 shows.

Thanks for the confirmation that it's the same sensor as the 435 - I was just going to post that question - I was going to order another 435 when I found it discontinued and had been replaced by the SCB-2000.
