The previoust reply of How to clean is very good.  However, it does not answer your question of how to disassemble it.  It's pretty easy to take apart and get back together again.  Removing all the dust is always a challenge outside a lab.

To access:  Hold the body/front lens with one hand and unscrew the knurled ring toward the back/eyepiece end with the other.  It shouldn't be very tight, as the main tube is plastic.  Hopefully this is where the dust is.  From here, you can clean the inside of the largest (objective) lens, and one side of the "second" lens.  (This is the lens you can see through the objective lens).  Due to design, this area is most susceptible to dust every time it is extended for use, as the felt shims do not fully circle the inside of the brass tubes.  There is a good quarter inch end gap for air/dust flow on each felt.
If you still have dust after assembly:
The eyepiece is threaded to a small ring that threads into the smallest brass tube, and there are two lenses inside in a plastic holder, with a spacer to hold them apart.  This may come apart as an assembly, or like mine, the eye lens will be ready to fall out. (BTW, the lenses curved surfaces face each other). When re-assembling, thread this assembly to the brass eyepiece finger tight so the eye lens doesn't rattle.  Set it aside.  Looking down the smallest brass tube, you will see a lens at the bottom.  This is the other side of the "second" lens you cleaned earlier.  When clean, thread the eyepiece assembly back into the brass tube.  
If this was performed under lab conditions, all is clean.

Missing lens

This is going to be very difficult to replace. However you can try contacting this company to see if they can order the part? Tasco does not sell replacement parts directly to the public.

Crosshairs look like an x instead of a cross got back from ABO repair for stripped tube, where eye bell fits on. they said they changed the tube. I shot about 50 rds with it when problem developed tasco...

You can get to the cross hairs of a scope, but not much further without some special tools. Take off the rear lens, just unscrew the whole thing, and you will see inside there a ring with slots in the side? A small screwdriver in one of the slots should spin the threads out. You should be able to remove the cross hair tube, inside of it on the front, you should have another lock ring with the slots, spin the cross hairs straight and lock them down. This is a basic scope, I'm sure they are all different, but basically the same. Try it. You cant hurt it, it's already broken, and you will have to send it back out again if you fail. I don't know what they charged you, but there is a guy on ebay advertising scope repair, $45, all scopes.Hope this helps.

Missing parts ? re Tasco 302048

Probably -- the 4mm gives too much magnification for you telescope-- difficult to focus or find thing in the sky-- you should also have had an eyepiece somewhere between 17mm and 24mm for lower power viewing.
