I'm looking for help that will allow me to get into the lens of a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 (TZ7) to remove dust.
So far I have stripped the camera down to where I have removed the lens/sensor module from the camera and I'm able to remove the sensor from the module but I don't know how to get into the lens to fix the problem.
Below is a photo of the problem I need to fix.

Frankly I wouldn't bother. Dust inside the lens is not going to cause any problems & will certainly not appear in your photos.
I agree. They're outside the zone of focus. You think that is bad? You should see some of my lenses!
After reading this article I decided to leave it as it's not worth the bother.
As I said...

(Nice link there Tom! - I love that 'Google' thing! )
Just to wrap this up, I found a superb guide on Youtube that will no doubt help those with my camera or those with similar models.
I now have a perfectly clean camera front to back.
Lens strip & clean:
I once owned a lens with an horrific ding on it, yet the photos were near perfect, anyway any little imperfection can easily be removed with most photo editors.
