    Yes you can. Purchased 62 piece security bit from Maplin, which contains bits to remove the screws on my Tomtom rider, 6 screws in total. Two screws are hidden under two small round stickers.

We replaced the alternater and battey....but it jst clicks....checked starter is good.. what up?

What method did you use to check the starter? Were you able to place 12 vo;ts to it and watch or hear it spin? Was the battery fully charged when you installed it?

It does appear to be a low voltage situation or bad electrical connection, however. I suggest that you recheck the battery connections, that the terminals are clean,and battery clamps have been wire brushed with your battery post brush.

Make certain that the connection at the starter is solid.

How do you replace the battery for a tom tom one

Before you undertake this exercise, make sure that you are confident with your ability to handle small and fiddly parts as the unit is pretty delicate and sensitive to static electricity.
You also want to make sure that you have a suitable replacement Li-Ion battery.
At your own risk, the following are the basic steps required for the TomTom One V3.
You need to very carefully:
0) Check that GPS is fully functional (even while plugged to a power source) to make sure that your replacement did not cause any existing issues.
1) Power off and remove all plugs and SD card if applicable
2) remove all (four) security screws with a special screwdriver
3) gently lift the casing away from the screen paying particular attention to any wiring like the speaker wires.
4) unplug the speaker so that you can remove the cover completely. (Remove any holding tapes as required)
5) unplug the battery pack (Li-Ion, 3.7V, 1200mA) which has a small connector with 3 wires from the motherboard. The battery is usually secured by double sided tape that needs to be gently unstuck.
6) plug the replacement battery with 1200mA or higher current ratings (higher current is better, lower is Ok but will deliver shorter usage time) and secure using (re-used) double-sided
7) Re-attach speaker
8) Re-assembled back cover but do not tighten the screws too hard!
9) Recharge the unit battery making sure the unit is still functional while plugged in to a power source (PC or USB charger).
10) Enjoy your revived GPS!

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Razor battrey

Did the phone show it was charging on the display? Was the charger firmly connected to the phone? The batteries will go bad after a period of time of recharge cycles. I have bought replacement batteries for my RAZR on eBay. Remove the battery and do a search on eBay for a NEW battery from a dealer using the battery P/N on the battery. I found a higher capacity battery for mine that lasts even longer on a charge than the original one that came with my RAZR. You can do a search on eBay for "RAZR battery". Look at the mAH rating on your battey, Try finding a replacement with the same or higher rating than your original. The higher the mAH rating, the longer it will last between recharge cycles.

Good luck!

Motorola razr battery problem

The only solution is to get a new battery. When you do, charge it completely when you first get it, then discharge it until it dies. This will maximize the life of the battery.
