I changed mine a few months ago. With the key blade extended look down into the slot where the key blade folds into. You will see a little slot (kind of hard to see) that you can put a small screw driver in and pry off the back cover (the side with the Ford logo). Be gentle with a slight pry/twist motion with the screw driver blade and it will pop loose.
Thanks, that's exactly right! I watched countless yourtube videos earlier this morning and found only one that (sort of) showed that. I found I needed to shine a flashlight directly into that slot (where the key blade fits into) in order to see that very small rectangular slot in which to put the screwdriver blade. Warning: I somehow managed to slightly enlarge that very small slot, probably by turning the screwdriver too much. Also, I still have no idea why they used the word "clip" in the instructions.That HAS to be the worst case of (small) industrial design, and instructions for it, I've seen quite a while.
