Based on this question I'm assuming you bought the diode already installed in the module. *

Yes. *You can reuse the module. *I do it all the time.

You need to press or punch the old diode out. *Since the diode is "dead" you don't have to worry about being careful with it. *Screw the lens all the way out. *Be careful to NOT lose the spring that should be under the lens. *Get a small "punch" (finish nail, small rod, etc) that is a bit smaller than the "hole" *Place the punch on top of the diode from the lens side and hit it lightly with a small hammer or anything with a bit of weight. *The dead diode should be knocked right out and fall back into the longer part of the module. *Then you just uscrew the module and shake the diode out of it.

*When you have the new diode, we can cover how to press it into the module or you can so some research here in the forum. *How to install a diode has been covered several times before.

Peace,
dave
