    Philip,
    if I haven't misunderstood, the washer is the cylindrical piece just under
    the picot screw, isn't it? There's a narrow gap between it and the pivot
    housing, do I have to pry it up (with a knife or so)?

    Federico,
    IF it is like the Plath I disassembled, yes it is. Pry it straight up. Do
    NOT twist. The washer fits a square boss on the pivot screw. You may be
    able to use your fingernail to lift it.  A knife edge or padded plier would
    also do.  Use care with what ever tool you see fit to use.
