The battery is located on the motherboard, underneath the drive tray.
The only special tools you need are a screwdriver and a soldering iron. Touch
a grounded surface before handling any of the components.
Disconnect the drive & power cables, remove the drive tray (the tray, power
supply, and drives all come off in one piece). Remove any cards. Remove
screws holding down the motherboard. Remove the motherboard.
Get someone to hold the motherboard in a vertical position on a table. Melt
the solder on the backside of the motherboard for one of the battery leads;
pull the battery lead through. Repeat with the other lead. Make note of the
battery orientation (mark a "+" on the motherboard?)
You now have the old battery in your hand. Take it to a PC shop and get a
replacement (I found mine at Radio Shack!).
Get your friend to hold up the board again. Melt the solder and push one lead
through, repeat with the other lead.
Install motherboard. Push down on all socketed chips, one of them may have
come loose (as in my case). Button everything back up, turn on the Amiga, and
set the clock.
Have a beer!
