  • After the battery is disconnected you may use your hands to pull out the battery. It may be a little difficult because there is adhesive on the backside of the battery.

You don't have to, just be careful with battery connector.

You have to be very careful with the battery connector. On mine, the plug was difficult to remove from the base and I ended up breaking the connections between the base and the circuit board. Maybe use the pry tool to hold the base down while easing out the plug.

To remove the battery without risk of damage, slide the corner of an old credit card under the battery in the middle at the end opposite the connector, then slide the card down under the battery to seperate the battery from the adhesive underneath. Repeat on the other side.
