Default .38 Safety Hammerless question

I picked up a 3rd model .38 safety hammerless today. How the hell do you remove the cylinder? I have a feeling whatever needs to be unscrewed is seized. I have it soaking in kroil tonight. I can't find any youtube videos that show how to remove the cylinder. Help please.

There is a bar just in front of the rear sight. Press it down and it unlocks the cylinder. Then just unscrew the cylinder counter clockwise. Make sure you keep the bar pressed down while removing the cylinder to avoid scratches.
