Just insert it in there, hold both firmly and twist a little bit of effort. You'll start to separate two halves of key Fob and then you can work your way down. Just twisting gently, careful not to damage a key Fob.

And now we've opened it and just set this to the side gently get under the battery, just pop it out like that.

Just like that. Once it sits down in place, you're good to go. Super easy. Just to click these two halves back together might take a little bit of effort. It's not going to click back together, you're just going to push until there's no more space in there.
