How To Change The Remote's Battery

Does anyone know how to change the battery in the remote for the 2006 GS 300? My brilliant service manager told me to use a Phillips screwdriver to get at the battery, and go to Radioshack for a replacement, but there is NO screw. I am afraid to pry it apart. The dealership is now closed, and of course will be busy Monday. Help!

The dealer told you to use the wrong type of screwdriver...and you do have to pry.

1. Take out the mechanical key from your fob.

2. Put a flat head screwdriver into the inset space...just inside of the mechanical key slot....and turn it. This will pry open the fob.

3. Remove the old battery and replace with a new CR1632 battery..positive side facing up.

4. Replace the cover of the fob by first pressing on the bottom then the top (The top is the side where the mechanical key is inserted)
