Here's how I changed the standard Honda Car Alarm Fob as shown in the picture.
Mine's a Stream. I think it's the same for Civic, Jazz, City.

Tools/Stuff Needed
1. 2.4mm Philip Screwdriver (from small screwdrivers sets commonly sold in home fix etc)
2. Replacement Battery - Energizer CR 1616. 3V. ($2.55 ea from NTUC, see picture)
3. Time <5mins to change

Left to right
A. Key Fob cover w/key; B. Key Fob cover; C. Electronics console battery holder ; D. console with buttons.
E. top - screw; F. bottom - battery

Steps.

1. Unscrew the screw securing the fob (E)
2. Pry open the Fob in two with a 5 cent coin using the indent (A + B)
3. Take out the electronic console (C+D)
4. Carefully pry open the 2 clasps holding the electronics console together. Taking care not to dislodge the rubber lining
5. Use a small flat screw driver to gently pry out the battery (original was Panasonic)
6. Replace the CR1616 with the new one with the positive end ( + ) facing down. Push it till click.
7. Close the console by securing the 2 clasps.
8. Test lock/unlock buttons and see if the LED light is lit. You can test to lock unlock your car if it's in range, it will work if properly done.
9. Place console in the fob cover with key
10. Close Cover
11. Screw the 2 cover together

Additional steps, you may wish to clean the inside of the key cover. (I use photographic cleaning equipment - air spray, brush and tissue. No liquids)

This whole process shouldn't take more than 5 mins (no cleaning).
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the clear photo and descriptions.
Can save many a trip to the agent for such a simple job.
