That's pretty much it. Those are self-contained canisters inside so not much to work with . Unscrew, remove guts, rinse guts, rinse out body, re-assemble and test.
If that doesn't work rotor might be shot.

There's a video on youtube about cleaning a hunter pgp. It involves cleaning the filter. Never had much luck with cleaning a non-rotator. More often than not, it's gears bound up internally. Those you can't get at.
