Most people have to replace their key fob batteries every three to four years, so you’ll be a pro in no time. Here is the super simple process of how to replace a Mini Cooper key fob battery:
  • Press the small silver release button to remove the physical key from the fob
  • Turn the fob over, insert the key into the small slot on the back case, and gently pry the fob open
  • Then use the key in the same way to remove the battery compartment cover
  • Remove the old battery. It can be helpful to use a small pointed tool for this
  • Insert the new battery with the positive side facing up
  • Replace the battery compartment cover, the back case of the fob, and the physical key
