Hope my info solves your problem,
This cleaning process is very delicate and sensitive. Cleaning lens should be done by authorized or pro camera technician. I suggests you to bring it to the nearest cam service center because they have appropriate tools to open the camera and properly clean it. A single failure or error on cleaning it by yourself might give fatal result to your camera.
