Lay the iMac display-side down on a flat surface.
Loosen the three Phillips screws securing the rear panel to the iMac.
These screws are captive in the iMac. The center screw will stop turning after about 3.5 turns and the outer screws will stop turning after about 5.5 turns. Do not try to remove these screws from your iMac.
Slightly insert the tip of a spudger (or any other small wedge-shaped object) under the PRAM battery directly across from its retaining clip.
Do not bend the metal retaining clip up, as it is brittle and will break.
Use another spudger to slide the PRAM battery out from under its socket's retaining clip.
