How To Remove The Krzr Battery Cover
Lately we’ve been having a ton of people asking us how to remove the battery cover of the Motorola Krzr K1 and K1m. This tutorial will work with every version of the Krzr that’s been released so far including: Verizon Krzr K1m, Sprint Krzr K1m, Cingular Krzr K1, T-Mobile Krzr K1, Motorola Krzr K1, Motorola Krzr K1m, Motorola Krazr, Motorola Krazor, Motorola Krazer.
The battery cover is actually pretty simple to remove. (It took me some time to figure out because it’s quite different that many other phones.) The button that you will use is shown in the picture to the left. For your convenience, I’ll make 2 lessons, one simple, and the other more thorough.
Simple Version (The lesson assumes that you are looking at the phone exactly as we’re looking at this picture.)
- Push the button shown in the picture.
- Slide the cover up. It will only move up about 1/8″.
- Pull the cover toward you.
Thorough Version (The lesson assumes that you are looking at the phone exactly as we’re looking at the above picture.)
In the picture above, you’re looking at the back side of the phone. The little button that you need to press is very near the top. You will probably have to push it in with your fingernail because it needs to be pressed in quite a bit, and I can’t push it in far enough if I just push it with my finger.
Once you’ve pushed it in far enough, you’ll be able to slide the cover up about 1/8″. That’s as far as it will slide, and a lot of people get stuck right there because they expect it to slide farther. That’s it, 1/8″.
Once you got it to slide 1/8″, you need to pull it toward you. The best way to do that is to get your fingernail under the edge of the cover and pry it apart. If you’ve done it correctly it will come toward you very easily! You’ve done it!
It’s very likely that you have done this to insert a new memory card, and if you have you should check out the following lessons:

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave them in the comments! I won’t know unless you ask. If there’s a way I can improve the lesson I’d be glad to do it!
