Craftsman 3/8" Model no. 875.199460

Cleaning out the girlfriend's garage and found this impact. Connected it to a compressor and air is blowing out around the forward / reverse button. How should I approach repairing it?

Assuming it otherwise looks okay, probably needs some air tool oil in the air inlet as well as some around the plunger on the back of the trigger.

May need new seals as they may have dried up. Usually not to hard to dissemble and rebuild. Try the oil first.

The oil didn't work. I will try to disassemble it. Are there any tricks to getting it apart?

Not really I always just take rear screws out and lay parts out so I can reassemble it.
You may find vanes stuck in slots.
