Awesome! Glad to hear this question has been answered. My key fob has been driving me nuts for a couple of weeks - finally no excuse for not getting the battery replaced. That was easy - thank you!

I replaced the battery in my comfort access key fob a while ago and took some pictures, I also did an easy how to guide for those who are having trouble.

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

I didn't see anyone else post pictures so I hope this helps.

One of my E93 key fob cannot open door remotely, so today I purposely run the car from Markham to Niagara just to charge the fob battery. But it didn't work so check the forum and just replaced the CR2032 battery. Everything work again! Really cannot understand why BMW give us wrong servicing information. Thanks the forum.

There's a listing on ebay to repair the batteries in the non CA fob's.
Search ebay for "BMW Key & Fob New Battery Service"

Here's a link
http://www.ebay.com/itm/291095932899

Saved me a few hundred dollars!!!
