Default How do I replace key fob battery (2002 X-Type)

How do I replace the battery in my key fob for a 2002 X-Type? Mine works, but the battery must be weak since the range is limited (~10 feet from the car).

I presume once I get it open I need one or two 3V lithium batteries. Do you know what battery # and how many?

Do I need to reprogram the key fob after replacing the battery? If 'yes', how do I do this?

Thanks.

Default Changing X-Type key fob battery

Click the image to open in full size.
For those of you that have the Jaguar flip out Ignition/door key and need to know how to change the fob battery here are the instructions
You will need a small crosshead screwdriver, a small flat blade screwdriver, Replacement battery.
This task should ideally be completed within three minutes of removing the circuit board
First remove the key from the Fob by inserting a small flat screwdriver blade into the slot in the fob assembly and push toward the key. Always point the key away from yourself to avoid injury.
Click the image to open in full size.
Separate the two halves of the fob by inserting the screwdriver into the fob as shown right and lever gently backwards.
Click the image to open in full size.
Try to complete the next task within three minutes between removal of the circuit board and re securing it after the battery has been changed.
Remove the screw from the circuit board and lift the board away avoid touching the components and handle at the edges only. Take care also not to touch any connectors.
Click the image to open in full size.
Flick the battery out of its retaining springs and discard. Fit the new battery with the side marked with a positive downward. Avoid touching the battery with your fingers as oil and moisture can reduce its performance and life span.

Reassemble in reverse order; replace circuit board and secure with the screw. Fit the back of the fob and click into place with finger pressure. Finally slide the key back in until it clicks into place

If for some reason you need to re-program your remote after changing the battery, I posted some instructions on a previous thread. Here it is: I only have 1 Remote/Key, can I program a second?

There are also instructions in the FAQ section.

lespres, are you sure the replacement battery is a CR 2035? I can't find them anyplace. The closest numbers are 2032 and 2025. Jack

Incidentally, not knowing the time limit to be without the battery, mine was out for around 6 hours and still did not need re-programming My key also only operates within 10 or 12 feet
