    stupid question! getting battery out of key!

    Just got me batterys through for my key fob, but finding it difficult to get the old battery out!

    If only i was a woman, i could blame it on being blonde!

    But it is jus me being a bit thick!

    Feel free to abuse me! (after any advice anyways on how to get the thing out)! lol!

    Should just clip out mate,

    Just get sumthing behind it to prise it a bit, or bend the clips slightly to release the battery

    Just took mine apart there, and there is 2 little clips holding it in, just prise them back very slightly and the battery should come free.

    Just remember when you put the new battery in, you will have to put the key in the car, turn the key (So everything lights up, not turn the engine on) and then pess the open/lock button to programme it back to work!

    Ya dont need to do all that.

    I just put the new batteries in then unlocked and then deadlocked the car, ne botha. The only thing you have to wurry about it getting the new batteries back in decent time. 3 minutes according to Haynes. Otherwise the remote control unit will need to be reprogrammed.
