how to remove battery in 2008 cts remote

Replacing The Battery In Your Cadillac Key Fob Replacing the battery before it dies will save you from having to replace the fob, reprogram it, and, if nothing else, getting stuck on the side of the road. Find the seam on the side of the fob and, using a small flathead screwdriver, pry the seam open on both sides. Take the cover off, remove the circuit board - use the screwdriver to pop it out - and swap the batteries out. Then close the case back together, and you're done. It's really simple; just be careful with the circuit board and battery contact while you're in there.

Can you replace the battery in an RX8 keyfob? If so how do you open the FOB. I've managed to seperate the key from the alarm but I can see no obvious place to get to the battery.

Assuming you're talking of the key fob, separate to the key (earlier version), then my Owners Manual, page 3-5 describes...

"1. Insert a small screwdriver into the slot and gently pry open the transmitter."

(refers to a slot on the side of the fob where the keyring is held)

Replacement is a CR2025
