Maglite 4D repair questions ....

Any Maglite wizzo's out there?
My neighbour collared me to see if I could help him resurrect his 4D cell maglight which was heavily corroded. Tail cap and body threads have been cleaned up, and also cleaned the tailcap spring so there should not be any contact issues at the arse end. New bulb and batteries put in but still no life. I want to try and remove the switch/bulb housing assembly to check for corrosion. How the smurf do I get it out? Is there anything else I should be checking for? I've shone a torch down the barrel, and the contact on the underside of the assembly seems clean enough, but I'd like to remove it if possible to have a better look/poke
Any thoughts would be welcome, as believe it or not I've never owned a Maglite
