This mostly depends on what you define
fairly mechanically inclined as.
I do electronic design and assembly professionally, and have a hobbyist interest in dissecting and repairing cameras and lenses of all varieties. I have taken apart a significant number of point-and-shoot digital cameras, and I can tell you from experience that there is a large element of chance involved in disassembling and reassembling any point-and-shoot, particularly if you have never taken that particular model apart before.
Basically, many PnS cameras, particularly with retractable lenses, have a very complicated assembly procedure.
Failure to properly follow whatever procedure they require can lead to you easily damaging one of the many, many plastic parts involved in the lens assembly or casing.
Now, if you can find a service manual for the camera, I would say "Go for it!". However, if you're doing your disassembly blind, it's very, very easy to damage something because it was assembled in a non-obvious way. One of the worst things to have to deal with is disassembling something, and breaking it along the way. Then, once you have it apart, you see that it had a extremely elegant mechanism for assembly and disassembly that you simply missed, because it was not apparent.
Anyways, it's up to you. If you do decide to try to take the camera apart, make sure you have a clean workspace, and some nice jeweler's screw-drivers, and a good pair of tweezers.
