easy to do, remove the "actual key" from the fob, and theres a little slot in there you can place a small screwdriver in to pry the fob apart.

It took all of about 5 minutes to change mine. Here is a You Tube video on how to do it.


With that said, I was surprised when my battery needed changing at 18 months old and only 4800 miles on the ODO.

I know people who leave their key fob in the car when it's at home. This draws the battery down quicker as it's always talking to the car.

Wait. What? They leave the FOB in the car? WTF is wrong with that picture. It's like leaving the key in the ignition for anyone to jump in and drive away.

It's very easy... just watch the video posted above. One side note... be sure that you're not standing on carpet or anything that can cause static electricity because one spark hitting the circuit board inside and your fob will be a paper weight.
