Question about Timex Expedition 40141 Wristwatch
I had the same problem. The thing that was most frustrating is that I have a standard tool to
remove and install screw in watch backs, but Timex in its infintie
wisdom, decided to make this model withta snap-in back.
I tired usinga a set of adjustable locking pliers with rubber claw covers. I tried holding one side with finger and thumb while using the pliers on the other to no avail.
robatbath's answer about jewelers having a special press led me to a solution. I just happened to have (2) 1.25" steel washers with 1/4 inch holes. I placed one on the face and one on the back. This way I could use the locking pliers (with rubber covers on) to press in the center of each side. The back snapped in fine. You can get washers and pliers at any hardware store.

I tried to replace the battery in my Timex Expedtion ( 930 P9 ) and dropped this super tiny screw that holds the battery in place. Any idea where I can get a replacement?

Jewellers have a special press or pliers for replacing 'snap back' cases. If you can't replace it yourself by putting the watch on a hard surface, protecting the glass and pushing down evenly then sometimes only the proper tools will do the job...
