LJ5L White Vertical Streaks

Hi, (Hewlett-Packard Laserjet 5L)

I had great success with your HP LJ 5L Multi-sheet/no-feed kit. Hopefully, this will be as simple.

I now have a few vertical white streaks down my page. Very obvious on graphics. Always in the same location across the page. Stuck around even after I replaced the toner cartridge.

In searching these discussion entries (and HP's) it appears I need to clean the mirror. Can you tell me:
1. Where the mirror is located on a 5L?
2. How easy is it to get to?
3. Will my no-feed kit video help?
4. Can I do this myself?

It appears that different model printers might be easier to clean than this one, but I hope it's still possible.

Thanks, - tim
In the scanner/laser assy, Just above the toner
with yellow caution label. Remove the metal plate and clean the mirror.
