Konica Hexanon AR 24mm f22 version - slipping focusing

I have a Konica Hexanon AR 2.8/24 f22 version with a 'slipping' focusing ring. I don't know how else to explain it. As I focus the lens it shifts as if there is no resistance and then carries on focusing as normal.
Can someone tell me what the problem is and is this something I can easily repair myself?
Thanks.

Iam not a specialist in Konica lenses but I believe there are (some) screws which connect the focussing ring to the inner barrell - probably they became loose.
You just have to remove the front ring to access these screws and tight them gently.

best regards Timo

In the end it was straightforward to fix. As Timo suggested, I unscrewed the front name ring and behind this are three screws. Remove these to release the focusing ring and behind this are three more screws which had become loose. I tightened these and reassembled the lens and now it's functioning properly.

Cheers Timo! Thank you!
