What you will need:

  • 1x CR2450 battery

Take a flathead screwdriver and push it into an opening and, with a prying motion, pop off the back of the key fob.

From here, you can remove the battery with your fingers. Take a new CR2450 battery and slide it into place, positive side up. All that’s left to do is click the back of the device back on. It’s that simple!
