    Hi All,

    Can someone instruct me on how to remove the Mac 180c clock battery. I do not want to break anything,
    and it seems to be held down, but I can't see how. I removed the plastic cover on the top but have no
    idea on how to get the clock battery out. Really appreciate any help on this, thanks.

    Hello,

    Sounds like the battery may have corroded and "locked" itself in place. Any signs of that?

    No, but after wiggling it around a bit I now find the the clock battery has charged up.
    Two days in a row now, started it up and it's keeping the correct date and time, go figure.
