how to pop open the remote key head?

Recommended Posts

I just got a new remote key head and am trying to figure out how it pops open. don't want to damage it in the 'experimenting' process.

anyone have a link to article, service manual or just know how the thing opens?

Dir you look in your Owner Manual? - it's covered on page 18 of mine.

Hmm- I must have the "abridged" version.. All it covers is how to use it, but not how to physically open the key head.

I also looked in the MY2003 996 owners manual online here, and no dice as well.

Can you post your section?

Thanks very much Loren- What MY is your manual? I noticed you have the 1-button remote, mine is the 2-button. They omitted the change-remote-battery section in the owners manual that came with my '02 pcar-

Well, today is going to be a fun day- I get to spend all of it installing a Kenwood DNX7100 double-din NAV/DVD unit and customizing the AC controls to fit the top slot of the lower console- good times :)

My car is MY1999.

Perhaps Porsche feels that changing a remote key battery is now a "dealer serviceable item". :lol:

LOL - Yeah, I guess Porsche is working that extra-$$ angle whenever possible... :censored:
