If the dust is just inside the eyepiece, that can be easily removed and
cleaned. You will need a special tool to grip it without marring it. Your
friendly local camera repair chap or chapette should have the tool or you
could get one for yourself from:

If it the dust is further into the viewfinder then the top plate has to be
removed and, due to all the electronic stuff under there, this is best left
for Leica to do.
