How to Replace BMW Key Fob Battery

I have seen a few posts asking how to change the battery in the BMW key fob with comfort access but I have not seen anyone show pictures or an actual guide. I took some pictures of mine when I replaced the battery and did an easy how to guide since I have seen a lot of people asking about how to remove the battery.

The guide is here - How to Replace the Battery in a BMW Key Fob

Hopefully it helps some people out who have been looking for instructions with pictures.
Thanks

No reflection on you or your guide but it's sad so many people need something like this.

Nothing wrong with wanting to see a picture of a several-hundred-dollars-to-replace part before performing surgery on it. Yes this is a pretty simple operation, but pictures make the procedure easy and obvious. Thanks for the post.

You consider removing the battery cover surgery? If I recall correctly the steps to replace the battery on described in the owners manual. It's sad there are some people who need a step by step guide, with pictures, to replace a battery. A process that takes all of a minute or two.

Yeah
There's a thing. My remote does NOT have a little cover so lovingly depicted in my user manual. Thought I'd share seeing how readily some of us pass judgments

Then you apparently do not have Comfort Access. So your battery is charged with the fob in the ignition and is NOT user replaceable. For those of us with CA, the replacement procedure as described above and in the manual is very simple and should be performed about every two to three years.

Though he says the rechargable battery is seldom a problem.
