bryubpharm said:I actually just replaced mine yesterday. I ordered it thru batteries.com, but I ordered the Energizer version just to be safe. I will say in the process I accidently busted one of the clips that holds the backing on, but that was the result of being an idiot. If you use a kitchen knife to pry it open, as one of the other postings had suggested it works like a charm. Also, when you go to put the new battery in, be sure to be close to the car so you can re-synch the remote to the car. This is done by pressing the unlock button 5-times consecutively. The car will chirp when this has been done. You will also know if it is syched or not because the remote will not work unless it is synched. If it doesn't work the first time, remove the battery and reinsert and try again. Good Luck.
How do you get this style of fob open?robw said:Many of us have the key with the integrated fob that requires the CR1632 battery like this (thanks for the pic Mattlach ):
You have the separate fob. In your case, the battery is in the fob with the buttons, not the key itself and I believe it is a different battery.. CR2032 if I remember correctly.
Actually I ended-up realizing I would need to do this shortly after. In our computer repair shop at work I found the perfect tools to get the job done. You described it to a tee thats forsure! Have the little ones cover there ears :lol:two sheds said:it takes some doing,but you must poke a rod through the little hole on the side.and by push,i mean shove like crazy.the little lid should pop up a little,then pry it up.it takes ALOT of pushing.i used a large paper clip and it worked fine.but it took alot of pushing and alot of swearing.
