How do you replace the bulb in the built in K-7 flash?

I don't need to replace it yet but I am curious as to how difficult it would be without damaging the weather sealing? Thanks.

Sorry wrong category - created a new thread.

The xenon flash tube should never need to be replaced in normal use. The supporting electronics are more likely to fail first. If the xenon flash tube should become damaged it would need to be repaired like any other major part of the camera by a qualified repair company. Doubly so as this is the high voltage part of the camera that can shock your socks off!
