Imformatica is right that Nikon will not sell parts to users, but thanks to the Interent they can?t stop others from selling to you. Here is one site you can try and I?m sure there are lots more. http://www.uscamera.com/

Call 3104148107 This is the Nikon Parts line, be warned it will probably take as long as 30-45 minutes of old time to get to a person.
Once you can get to a person, give them the camera model and describe the problem. They just sold me a replacement battery door for $9.95 + $6 dollars shipping and handling.
The rep was so nice he even printed out the device design blow up, and the relevant section of the manual, so I could see the step by step with out having to purchase the full blown repair manual, which runs $83.

This is a design glitch with these Nikons and many people are complaining about it. The clock battery is supposed to take a small charge from the main battery - enough to maintain the settings when the camera is not in use. However the clock battery that is used is not sufficiently strong enough to hold a charge for an adequate length of time.
As this is somewhat of a design flaw it is unlikely that a new clock battery will make any significant difference to the problem you are experiencing. Neither is it a user serviceable job and for these reasons I do not recommend that you try to replace the clock battery.
Nikon themselves say the following;
"The clock-calendar is powered by a separate rechargeable battery, which is charged as necessary when the main battery is installed. If the camera has been stored with the main battery removed for a long period of time, the clock may need to be reset.
Once the main battery has been reinserted, the clock battery will recharge in several hours, during which time the main battery should be left in the camera."
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

The battery could be near the end of it's useful life. Try another one to make sure it's the battery and not the camera.
