Help. Can someone help me swap a Mini Countryman Remote Key Battery?

Hello,

Been scouring the web trying to figure this out.

I have a Countryman 2012 that has the Comfort Access Key. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to pop open the key hatch to replace the battery.

The hatch that people keep talking about is different then the others I have seen in the sense that it has no port push on.

Advice? Sorry in advance if this has already been asked around here.
