how to open keyfob

Anyone know how to open the keyfob for a '16 ILX? I got the battery low message in the MID. Surprised the battery is low after only 2 years of ownership. My RL's keyfob battery lasted 8 years before the warning appeared.

Got a new battery at the drug store and in my clumsiness while trying to pull out the old battery, I pulled the whole interior unit out and then all the buttons fell off. Easy to put back on, but took a while with fat fingers!

It was more like $5 because I bought it at a CVS Pharmacy.

Always good to keep a spare of these, I always keep an extra one in the center.

I was surprised the battery only lasted 2 years. My RL's keyfob lasted 8 years before battery needed replacing!
