Problem replacing key-fob battery.

    I have the multifunction key fob for a 2008 Grand Caravan SXT.
    This is the one with buttons to open the side doors, rear hatch, all
    doors, engine start, unlock, and panic. It's the same as the one used
    on the Chrysler Town & Country.
    I need to replace the #2032 disk battery. I got the little door off
    the fob, but for the life of me, I can't get the battery out.
    It is partially covered by design of the fob case. I have tried
    pulling, prying etc. There has got to be a trick. The manual only says
    to remove and replace the old battery. The battery is intact, and has
    not leaked. I can rotate it with my finger so I know it's not corroded
    in place.
    Just can't get it out. I'm ready to try needle nose pliers, but don't
    want to take a chance of damaging the thing and having to purchase a
    new one. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance

    You should have tested the remote at Autozone, and if you needed a new
    battery, give the counter guy the remote and tell him to replace it
    for you.
