I managed it by buying a broken (non-working) F32X from an auction service for something like 5 bucks. I just made sure (by looking at the photos) that the hotshoe was intact.
Here's how to disassemble and replace foot (I got to this by trial and luckily no error ^^).
Unscrew 2 small screws located under the battery flip cover.
Took me about an hour to do this (most time was spent on trying to figure out how to disassemble the lamp), and the lamp works perfectly.
Warning: better test disassembly on the replacement lamp, since even if you break it, all you need it for is the hotshoe, so you can practice on it. Only after you learn how to disassemble the F32X do this on your working lamp.
Hope this helps!
