Change the Keyfob Battery for a Range Rover Velar (2020-2024)

Changing the keyfob battery for your Range Rover Velar (2020-2024) keyfob is a simple process. To change the keyfob battery for your Range Rover Velar, you will need the key, a flat screwdriver, and a new battery.

Follow these straightforward steps:

Tools Needed:

  • The keyfob itself
  • Flat screwdriver
  • New CR2032 battery (check your owner’s manual to confirm the type)


  1. Slide the key out: Start by sliding the key out from the keyfob.
  2. Open the keyfob: With the emergency key removed, you’ll notice two small gaps on the side of the keyfob. Insert the flat part of the emergency key into one of these gaps. Gently twist the key to create a small opening. If you encounter resistance, don’t force it; instead, try twisting from the other gap.
  3. Use the screwdriver: Once you have created a small opening with the emergency key, take your flat screwdriver and insert it into the opening. Carefully twist the screwdriver to separate the two halves of the keyfob. Be gentle to avoid damaging the plastic casing. The keyfob should clip open easily, revealing the battery compartment inside.
  4. Replace the battery: Now that the keyfob is open, you can see the old battery. Using your fingers or the edge of the flat screwdriver, carefully lift the old battery out of its compartment. Be cautious not to touch any of the electronic components inside the keyfob. Take the new CR2032 battery and place it into the battery compartment. Ensure the positive side (usually marked with a +) is facing up. Press the battery down gently until it is securely in place. Double-check that the battery is seated correctly to ensure proper operation of the keyfob.
  5. Reassemble the keyfob: Align the two halves of the keyfob and press them together until you hear a click. The back cover should clip back on easily. Make sure the keyfob is fully closed and that there are no gaps between the halves.
  6. Insert the emergency blade: Slide the emergency blade back inside the keyfob.

Your Range Rover Velar (2020-2024) keyfob should now be working with the new battery. This process is quick and ensures your keyfob is ready for use.
