Once battery is off, the wires will still be connected to motherboard. You will need to desolder the wires. Using the soldering tool, use the heat to melt the connection. As you do this, pull on the wires with a tweezer until wires comes off. To ease reassembly, take note of which wire goes to the negative and positive terminals.
