    • Lift the battery out of the PRAM battery holder.

      • What I did to free the PRAM battery is I broke the plastic battery holder identical to the circled one on the other side of the PRAM battery, then I was able to free the PRAM battery. I couldn't get the PRAM battery to budge without breaking the holder.

      • Don't be worried, breaking the plastic holder won't cause much damage nor will it hinder the ability for the PRAM battery to stay in place. Only break one holder, though.
