Keyless Entry Keypad battery dead?

My Ford keypad which was a dealer installed accessory on my 06 Escape, just stopped working tonight. Seems that its internal battery died ... not sure. The user guide talks about low battery, how you spot it, etc. but nowhere does it say how you replace the battery. Anyone know if this is a typical problem with the keypad and how to replace?? Thanks!

Should be a screw on the back of it, if its what im thinking, inside my one is all the circuitry and the battery, just be careful not to damage it when opening it. Hope this helps

RESURECTION...

Mine died as well. The whole internet had nothing to say about this damn thing so I was going for broke, as they say.
Well, here goes.
Tools required: 1) wide'ish but slightly sharpened flathead to go into the small groove at the right side base of the pad, 2) razor/exacto knife 3) wife's sweatshirt to protect my paint job!
Step 1: Pry the crap out of the cover (less twisting/more prying), with any luck the backing tape will hold and the cover will not.
Step 2: (ugly part) make a circumferential cut around the soft button material as close as you can to the sealing groove that the cover was in.
Step 3: remove buttons, support plate, and circuit card from the base and replace the 3V BR2335 button style battery.
Step 4: Hope it all goes back together with reasonable weather resistance. We'll see...
PS Maybe if it was above 26F it would have been easier...

Oh, BTW that basterd is silicone-ed/glued together, I'm not thinking they ever really intended the battery to be replaced by anybody (100,000 uses, my donkey)
