Led Lenser H14 disassembly

I need to change the power cable of a Led Lenser H14R2.

Unfortunately after unscrewing everything, the circuit is still connected to the body. 
Did someone take this light apart and can share some tips?

I do not have that light, but from the picture the circuit board appears to be held in place by the tabs at the lower left and right of the board.

Perhaps you can tilt the board up so that the tabs rotate downward. That might reveal the underside of the board and allow you access to where the power cord connects to the board.

Thanks Firelight2, I already tried it, the PCB is getting bent and I am afraid to break it.
It feels like it is still connected somehow

If you have a Leatherman store nearby, take it there. They will likely replace it under warranty.

It has been in so many caves I am not sure it is still covered by warranty

I have never had an issue with it. Just tell them what happened, (in my case it was usually the light getting wet) and they have always given me a new light. (Unless the battery is bad, then they will sell you a new battery.)

Work provides a LEDLenser flashlight and headlamp, along with a leatherman multitool, and I’ve been back more times than I care to trading out knives and lights.

Since it is 5 yo light and I did't want to wait the time it take to send it to the company I decided to fix it myself.

In case someone will find this thread in future, there is a nut hidden under the rear adjustment knob, pull out the knob (some force is required) and unscrew the nut.
