Yes I am wondering the Same thing. I started getting the low battery warning today on both key fobs. Funny that I started getting the warning on both fobs the Same Dayand just After the Dealer finished doing an oil change....

Take out the key from the FOB (slide the lever in pic):



Then place the key like this:



There is a little beefy plastic piece, twist key. FOB back pops off.



Replace battery, snap back, back on

Thanks but unfortunately my titanium key fob does Not look like that. The key just sits inside the fob. The instruction manualhas me remove the key from the fob, but then IT is unclear how to get the fob apart.

Mine is a Ti FOB as well, from a 2013.

I just gave you a step by step to do exactly that. Remove the key. Follow steps as pictured.

Mine is a 2012 fob.

It's different from yours because I have to remove the faceplate then the key.

The part where I'm having problems is where I try to separate the two halves of the fob apart. The manual says to twist at a certain area of the fob and then pry the halves apart, but it doesn't seem to work.

Yes, mine is the same. After removing the key, I can not figure out how to separate the 2 halves of the fob either.

My fob looks very different. I do not have the slide lever, and there is no "beefy" part on the edge, or anywhere else that I can see.

I fail. Don't know how else to help you other than to recommend you have the dealer do it and show you for next time. They break it they buy it, right?

You'll see two notches cut out of each side of the remote. Insert a small screwdriver into that notch gently force the blade between the two halves, & twist. The two halves snap apart, and you can replace your battery. Don't be afraid..it won't break. Mine ran through the washer and dryer before I had to take it apart & dry it out. Still works great.
