The struts sound fine, but you know that already. You need a gripper tool, DO NOT use water pump pliers or similar. You can buy stuff but basically a tight-fitting rubber bung (cork) is the thing, you can buy sort of adjustable cones. You jam it in, then push in as you turn, and the rubber expands and grips, eventually it comes loose. I work in a lab so I have a set of loads of sizes of these. I would try leaving it on a radiator to warm through, as the female thread will expand more than the male thread, and just try with Fingers of Doom, or press it into your palm while twisting. It's frustrating because it's fairly simple but for something to grip it with. It you mess it up you'll distort the threads and the front element will never go back in.

Typical, got it apart. Put it into the Palm of one hand and the offending part in the heel of the other and twisted. Freed off the part of the release that had jammed. Will clean the aperture blades as they are sticky and clean the fungus, not to mention cleaning off the grease of doom. Might get some liquid electrical tape for the bellows.

Got the shutter back together and went to test it and it had jammed up again. Took it apart again and it turned out it had activated the self timer and knocked it into x sync instead of m sync. Just need to sort the bellows out now.
