Hello. Welcome to Just Answer.

I would disconnect the battery, just to make the fixture safer to work on.

I have been shocked by one of these batteries when it was fully charged, and it's not something I would like to have happen again.

Just be sure to reconnect the battery before you close the fixture back up.
