Replacing the battery of a Toyota Auris key fob

Lately I started receiving the message "Key battery low" when turning off the car which is a 2014 Toyota Auris. I found a similar post for Toyota Prius and the receipt for Auris fairly similar with a couple of exceptions.

1. Take out the metal key and split the housing in half by using a flat screw driver.

2. Use a flat screw driver to remove the black plastic that covers the battery.

3. Use the screw driver to eject the existing battery.

4. Insert a new CR2032 battery.

5. Click on the black cover and the housing. Insert the metal key again.

6. Success (no need to resync the key with the car or anything else)
