Changing battery in Titanium key fob?

Does anyone know how to change the battery in the Titanium key fob? I can open the fob and get to the spare key but can't find a way to get to the battery. I don't need to replace it yet of course but would rather figure this out now than when jammed up at some later point.

Thanks,
Chris

It probably will be easier to remove if/when the battery dies because by then there are bound to be a ot more people who already changed their battery and they can help you with the steps.
I think few people would've tried to change the battery already

i was told the IA key fobs will only last 1-2 years due to their being proximity based.

you can download the manuals for free here.

Hey guys, sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm wondering what you guys used to pry open the fob.

I'm trying to replace the battery on mine, but I can't seem to pry the two halves apart.
