Epson CX4800 Feed problems

How do I disassemble a CX4800? No clue from manual.

I think I may have damaged either the roller or paper feed clutch. Roller has grown increasingly erratic over the past 3-4 months, and today, I could get NO paper to feed - paper is going down 3-4 inches, and then stopping, coincident with the red error light coming on. Error light goes out when I eject, but I am getting no successful paper feed at all. (Printer is 3-4 years old, but has been great for me.)

In frustration today, I yanked out a paper from the back. So if my initial problem was just smoother out rollers or something, I may have now also damaged the paper feed or paper feed clutch.

Is there any way to fix this and salvage what has been a great and reliable printer for me? I would really prefer to not have to lay out cash right now for a new printer.
