Question about Olympus Normal Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 Manual Focus Lens
Usually those lenses have retaining rings that unscrew from the barrel of the lens. My guess (not having seen the exact lens) is it's the same with your lens.
I would suggest you get a set of micro straight edge screwdrivers and a rubber cap and lid remover, like those sheets of rubber you use to get a better grip. A rubber glove may do the job if you don't have one, but make sure to wash any powder off the glove before you start work.
Start by taking off the first retainer, which is that thing with the printed letters and numbers on it. If you can't get enough friction with the rubber on it, then use the micro screwdriver. The way to use the screwdriver is to stick the tip onto any sort of dimple on the retainer, such as the lettering. It will damage the printing, but on a cheap lens it won't matter much. There may be other retainers you encounter as well that have a notch in one side that you can slip the screwdriver into and use that to turn the ring.

I went on the net to try and find a manual, to no avail. My suggestion would be for you to contact Olympus support, and see if they can supply one. Here is their site:
If you scroll down the page a bit, you will find a section to contact Olympus. Hopefully, they can supply one, otherwise you will have to see if a local camera repair shop can help you.
Wish I had more, but hope this helps.
