I cracked the red autofocus panel on the front of my 600EX-RT and got the replacement part from Canon, but how do I go about getting the old panel off the light? I've tried everything but can't seem to get it to detach.Cracked? Can you carefully work something (knife blade, screwdriver tip) into the crack and then slowly expand the crack until the panel breaks in two?
That, and can you infer how it attaches from the replacement piece? I assume there's a flange around all or part of the red lens that holds it to the body, but if it's just tabs on 2 sides you might be able to squeeze it along that axis and insert it.
And ditto about taking apart a flash. Those high voltage capacitors can really be dangerous.
