Have a look at some General Videos such as this, for example.

The principle is the same no matter the kind of toilet cistern, or whether you use some fancy brand-name cleaner, or plain vinegar, etc. Obviously, though, the closer the cideo is to the actual cistern you have, the better.

First take clear photos from all angles of how it is all installed now. Maybe draw a diagram or write some notes… whatever works for you.

Then take each removeable item out, and soak and scrub individually. In the meantime soak the tank, then scrub that, then replace all parts according to your photos or drawings.

Only after that will you know whether anything needs to be replaced, at all.
All very sound ideas.

But please do also bear in mind that the entire inlet and floater assembly is cheap and lightweight plastic and (speaking from memory) costs around 20 CHF. It's also not that easy to disassemble without breaking something (because it's cheap and thin and ageing plastic) .So maybe replacement is the less hurtful option. Just my opinion.
