Anyone disassemble Metz 48 AF-1 Flash? (Reflector & Diffuser is stuck in)

Don't remember how this happened, but the reflector and the diffuser for my Metz 48 AF-1 got stuck within the flash, and can't pull them out. The flash is all good otherwise.

Anyone have experience disassembling the flash unit? Or, should I send it in to CRIS for repairs?

Thank you!

Disassembling a flashgun is a risky procedure.
There could be some residual charge on the capacitors and you could very well get yourself a strong hi-voltage jolt, which would be unpleasant to say the least.
I'd say you should send it back for repairs.

Thanks, @LensBeginner. I think that's a wise advice, and I hate to shock myself
