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

Re: Changing the key fob battery

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.
