Question about Canon (5083A002AA) Binocular
This answer may only apply to Canon 12x36 IS II 5
To replace the battery cover you will need to split the central case.
To split the central case you will need to loosen the two very small philips screws located deep in the holes on each side. Then you need to remove the single philips screw between the adjustable oculars just below the focus knob. Finally remove the plastic name plate carefully since it is held on with double face tape. At this point you will carefully pry all around the half with the battery door off of the main body. It does not come off easily and there is no reason to remove or do anything to the objectives, focus knob or the eyepiece components. Once you have the cover off you will need to un-bend the battery door keeper tab so it slides through the slot and then remove what is left of the old battery door and at this point you install your new door and replace the keeper by doing a re-bend (best to buy a new keeper) finally install the cover. Not an easy fix and is a lot harder if you try to remove the oculars. Hint to remove oculars remove rubber covers first. Note that there is a plastic retainer outside of the objective lens tube to remove. Then roll the rubber off from the body to the objective. With these removed the rest will be obvious. On a easy (1) to hard (5) scale this is at least a 4.5.
I know this does not apply to the 18x50 IS UD 3.7 all weather since it has a rubber wrapper all over the body and objectives. But if you remove that rubber wrapper you may get there eventually.

I will try to help you. I have never owned one of these binoculars, but I have worked on a lot of devices, and found that in order to replace the battery door, it will have to be disassembled to a degree (enough to gain access to the components of the door). This could be no easy task, since engineers don't worry about those things when they design them. Sometimes there are a few screws that hold it together, but sometimes some screws are hidden by labels or plastic covers for cosmetic reasons, and it can be difficult to locate them. In some instances, the glue holding the covers or labels will not allow them to be removed without some damage, and then again, sometimes you can reglue them to make it look like it's never been touched. If you take it in to a camera shop, they might be nice enough to tell you how to go about replacing it, since they deal with similar things every day, and they may even do it for you, for a nominal fee, or possibly for free. These are the only things I can suggest, wish I had more precise information for you. Good luck, they sound like a neat set of binoculars and well worth fixing.
