Remove the 6 (3.70 mm) screws on the metal cover. Two of those screws are covered by black plastic covers. After removing the screws the panel should come off and will look like the final image. Be careful of the red and black wires on the top. If the flash is charged you could get a mild shock.

It is not necessary to remove the six screws circled in red. To remove the lens unit, you just have to remove the two covered screws circled yellow.
