Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash

Open Question

Broken freznel lens

I broke the freznel lens on the front of my flash. I ordered a repair part online. It looks very easy - two screws appear to hold the front of the flash unit together. I should be able to separate the case a little, pull out the fragments of the broken lens and put the new one in its place. Is it really that easy? Is there anything I need to watch out for - switches or wires that I am likely to break when I separate the two halves of the case? I'm also a little nervous about coming in contact with the capacitor (or some other charged part of the circuitry), which I understand is difficult to discharge fully, but it doesn't seem likely that I will find any electrical connections up there behind the lens... I also lost the close up diffuser in the accident, but that appears to be more difficult to repair without serious disassembly - am I right about that? Thank you.
