Hi im jules_09,you can get the instructio from your technician they this service manual that has it all from service code to repairs.its a bit tricky cleaning it and also you migth sratch or damage the drum.if you ant i can direct you but be extra extra carefull.
1st open front door,then remove toner cartridge and move it to your right so you can full out the developer unit.
2nd un srew the developer unit then carefully full it carefull its a bit heavy
3rd see the drum unit it also have srews un srew it then full it out,do not let the drum be expose the drum from light office or sunlight.thrn place it in a table beneath it is a news paper or a soft cloth,thereyou ca see the drum procees unit you can clean it by using a smooth paint brush then locate the id sensor its just a litttle component located at the front end and left side while facing it,just clean it with the brush or blow air to it not with a compressor just blow like blowing a candle 3times then re install the same process i repeat do not let thedrum be expose to light ok
