How do I clean or replace the primary mirror?

How do I clean or replace the primary mirror of a Vivitar 220/SL film camera? When I look through the few finder the image is not clear. The secondary mirror is clean and very clear.

Very hard to replace as it normaly contains the photometer.

Remove the objective to gain access to the mirror.

You may try using a q-tip and some small amount of window cleaner. Use as many q-tips as needed to gently dry the mirror.

DON'T EVER spray anything inside!
