Changing the battery in this key fob is easy. The first thing you need to do is remove the internal key inside the device. Do this by holding down the small button on the front of the key fob and pulling on the key-ring on the bottom. Once your key is out, find the slot to the side of the keyhole. Insert your flat-head screwdriver into the slot and twist. This will separate the two halves of the key fob.

Now, take your precision screwdriver, or another thin tool. Use this tool to pry the battery out. Insert it next to the battery, push down to the bottom, and pull the tool away from the battery. With a prying motion, the battery will pop out with ease. Now, take a new CR2032 battery and click it into place face-down. Push the two halves of the key fob back together, and return your internal key. That’s it! Now your device is charged and ready to go.
