Key FOB battery dead

Replace it myself or have the stealership do it?

Im thinking it is just a watch type battery and should be simple. Any complications such as reprogramming required if you remove the battery?

I use a small jewelers screwdriver to pry them out, but you could use a toothpick. You just pop it out of the holder. Sometimes I just slap it in my hand and it pops out.
