The battery cap is corroded on. How can it be removed?

History

I picked up the apple wireless keyboard from a friend who wasn't using it. I went to put batteries in it and found out that it was stuck.

Then I:

  • Tried a basic flathead
  • Tapped around the head with a small hammer to see if it would unseal
  • Attempted a vice and nickel method--I now have a torqued nickel.

So far no direct access method has worked.

I also read the Batteries Corroded & stuck thread n here.. That allowed me to know there was a panel on the back. My KB is a little different, the panel is more in the middle. I opened it up and see there is a battery--so I'm nearly sure it's a corroded battery that has leaked onto the aluminum screw and caused all of this.

Anyone have ideas on how to solve this?

Mix up a solution of water and baking soda (about a teaspoon per cup) and apply that with a cotton swab to dissolve the corrosion.
