    How on earth do I get the battery out of the key (S3 8P). I must be 'special' or something as I have no idea where to split the key to gain access to the battery. Oh and what battery does it take?

    Cheers :tocktock:

    There is a slot behind the chrome part where you can clip a keychain on. You just put a coin there and flip it out.

    If I remember, it takes CR2032. You could try to clean the contacts of the battery and the FOB, where it is frequently the cause of the remote not working too well anymore.
