Too bad you didn't read this thread first. You could have done it yourself and had money left over for Starbucks.

True enough but I would rather pay the little bit and not scrape, break or mess it up at this point.
Still got a Starbuck, tall, black, regular. No fancy froths for me.

Using a screwdriver to pry it open can deform the plastic seams a little bit, but a little sandpaper makes it like new again.

Pull the key out halfway & rotate to open fob shell - no fuss - no muss

See the video in the first post

The trick is to remove the key first.

DO NOT use this video to change battery. You will break off a tab. Instead, get a small straight blade screwdriver about as wide as the slot near the key hole. Place screwdriver in the slot and twist. Much easier and without risk of breaking the plastic.

Yep the correct way to open the fob case leastwise on my 2016 Ultimate is to use the narrow blade screwdriver method, piece a cake!
