The cover on 20 year old Pulsar pocket watch won't open all the way any longer. The release works fine, but the door no longer "pops" open.

Do not panic yet - all you need is the battery replacement.
Don't mind that the watch is less than a year old - it may laid in sellers store for a year or so and as the watches are not refitted with the brand new battery at the selling point, they may have underpwered battery much more quicker than you expected
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. Your watch will tick as brand new and will last much longer then before.

Do not forget to rate, please.

How do I release the battery clip on a Timex Expedition watch to change the battery.

I just had this problem, and my 8 year old and I had to fiddle a bit to figure it out.

Just to confirm, you have removed the back cover and taken the watch guts out of the face and strap assembly and are looking at the battery which has a cover over it and maybe a sticker on the cover that says "unlatch to remove battery", with two >'s, one pointing to to each side?

On each side there are two small metal tabs, which surround a small moulded-in plastic piece with an opening in the middle.

The release is in that opening in the plastic piece. You need to fish around in that opening a little to catch the release and push it outward toward the edge of the watch (away from the battery). You need something very small to do this with, like a straight pin. If successful, the cover pops up on one side and then you do the same on the other side.

Good luck.
