What you will need:
• 1x CR2025 battery
• Flat-head screwdriver
Find the slot on the bottom of the key fob near the key ring. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the slot and twist until the two halves of the key fob pop open.
Next, carefully position your screwdriver under the batter and pry it up. The battery should pop out with ease.
Take a new CR2025 battery and click it into place face-down. Finally, just snap together the two halves of the key fob and you’re all set. Nice work!
