Removing the keyboard of the Korg Poly61

Does anyone know how to remove the keyboard of the Poly61? I've opened it up and can't figure out where to detatch the keys/keyboard so that I can clean the contacts. Some of the keys do not sound or sound only intermittently. However all the oscillators work as I have been able to test them through the Chord Memory and Arpeggio functions.

Well I've gotten it off and there is a thick layer of dust on the contacts. What's the best way to clean these contacts? I have WD40 and Radioshack Contact Cleaner on-hand.

Here's everything you need to know. I followed these instructions for my Prophet-600, worked great.

I know this thread is old, but I guess what op was missing is you have to remove a few screws on the bottom of the case, in order for the keyboard to come off.
