Dust inside Tamron lens - remove it?

(Mods: the only lens forum is for Canon lenses. I guessed this should be posted here).

I have large, visible dust specs inside my tamron zoom lens. I searched here and learned that dust on the inside of the front element will not show in pictures. But this dust is located on the next element down - the element that moves in and out when the zoom ring is turned.

Should this dust be removed?

No, it won't hurt anything. You've probably got more problems from crud on your sensor to think about. ;)

I guess the best thing to do would be to shoot some pics of the blue sky and see if the spots show up.

Removing dust out of lens is not part of the warranty scheme... so I guess Tamron expects its lenses has a tendency of being a vacuum cleaner.
