    It got me beat

    Try to release the battery clasp on G 056 module 2038 without success. I have seen Sjors's video, but still got no clue about the mechanic of this clasp. I got all the tools ready for the job. Please explain.

    I suppose it is like the other battery clasps. I've seen the video and the little drawing, too. The drawing was more helpful. WIth a screwdriver I was unable to open the clasp. I used the needle from a safety pin.

    Imagine that the part you need to move is like a u-shape cinch that is held by tension over a hook pointing down. So what you need to do is to first pull (or rather press in this case) the u-shape cinch down and then away from the battery. Try that with a needle and it should be much easier than with even a small screwdriver (mine was 1.5mm, IIRC, too big).
