    Getting the batteries out of clasps on the pag40-3v?

    I just picked up a NOS casio pag40-3v. Basically the batteries are dead inside. I've opened the case and have the replacement batteries, I'm just trying to figure out how to open the clasps to get them out. I have tweezers, just not sure what's next.

    Thanks for any help!

    Use a small flat head jewellers screwdriver or other small flat object and insert it in the tiny hole between the 2 lips on one side of the clasp. Then just push it outwards(but not to hard). And it should pop off easily.

    The PRG-40 is the only watch I know of though that has 4 batterys so its a though one...

    The worst part is to reset it afterwards with the AC reset procedure. I have read that can be tricky on the PRG-40 due to the 4 batterys.
