When the battery begins to run out on the key fob, it is best to change it sooner rather than later. Otherwise you will have to open the left hand door manually with the key. There is a little cover cap just above the handle which you will need to remove first in order to do this.

As the battery begins to fail, the car indicators will flash 9 times upon locking.

Note: If you car starts to flash 9 times, you only have 100 more presses before the car will lock you out!

Remove the key from the keyring.

Using a key or a coin, lever the casing apart as shown below.

The battery is located directly on the PCB. You can't miss it!

Fit the PCB back in the front section ensuring that all three pegs are correctly located.

Close up the casing and test.
