What's the best procedure for opening an MS 10 to clean the insides?

You might want to start with removing the side panels...

Here is the Service Manual (by synthfool.com)

Just be aware the end panels and the top/front are attached using brackets that are only screwed to each panel. I recommend leaving them attached to one of those panels so it's easier to reassemble straight.

That's why I wanted to clarify. Thanks for the manual link. It's not quite as straight forward as some other boards I've worked with.

You're welcome. Yeah the MS series is a huge PITA if you need to take out boards. Fortunately, the only thing I ever had to do was put a broken key to the bottom of the keyboard, that was easy... Good luck with it!
