As you are looking at a gas appliance, any work on it needs to be by an approved Gas Safe engineer. If you do the repairs yourself, and then a (dangerous) fault occurs, you would become liable for any incident.
As with any gas appliance, it is best left to a professional to repair.

Many thanks for your answers they're very much appreciated. As this heater is quite old I think we're going to take it out and fit a calorifier.
