Replacing the key battery

Anyone got any clues how to open the key to replace the battery on a 2001 Clio?

It just wont budge & I don't want to start hacking at it with a screwdriver to prise it open.

I think the cover slides open but even then it can a very tight - just take care and don't damage the electronics inside

If it's a radio one they just slide there's a arrow on one
side but they are very tight if you look at the top opposite
to the key you can just see little dove tails that hold it together.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

If it is the infrared one then there is a screw on the back of it.
