Default Replacing remote battery Forester My12

Does anyone know if I can replace the battery in the remote or do I need to go to a dealer for reprogramming ? It is the 3 button remote.

I saw one apart a couple of weeks ago. Seemed to be a straightforward battery replacement, albeit more screws than the SG two button key.

The internal screws are very fiddly! And bounce extremely well (picture me grovelling on the floor at SCA with a torch ... ).

Hi havachat, I can confirm that you are able to replace the battery yourself.

Excellent !
I removed the screw from the remote last night and inside there is a self contained unit that has the 3 buttons and lifts out. This sealed with further screws. Hence my concern, I then went on the internet and just could not find anything there.
