    Casio DW-5400, how to open battery clip?

    Can someone give me some hints on how to open the battery clip on this watch?
    I have no idea which end is the correct one and nothing obvious is popping out, so I am stuck...

    Any help is appreciated!

    By the look of it this is one of the clips where the whole thing gets removed? On either end is there a wider section to it? I.E. in your photo it looks like on the top left of the clip next to the screw it has a longer piece where you can get the end of a pair of tweezers under to unclip it?

    HTH?

    You can stick a needle in one of the holes at the end of the battery clip and pry the tab off. The whole clip can come off. Putting it back, it snaps in.

    I was trying to lever it off at the wrong side it seems. It wasn't obvious which side it should work on.
    In the end, the side with the tab flat was the correct side, and the other side was still on.

    Thanks for the info.


    Now, I am wondering if I should replace with a CR2320 (if they still make those) or just use a CR2032, while not the correct size, it does seem to work fine, and fit is OK with that clip.

    If the 2032 fits, go ahead and use it. A CR2025 might be a little easier to get in. They still sell the CR2320's as well, so it might be easiest just to use one of those.
