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.
