You will need to remove the screws that secure the rear cover, and take it off. Then disconnect the red battery lead from the terminal on the circuit board followed by the black battery lead from the other terminal.If you haven't already got a replacement battery, you can get one from:http://www.azbatterystore.com/Precor-EFX542i_EFX544_EFX546_or_EFX546i_Ver._A.html
