CMOS battery replacement

The secondhand GTA04 I have now is pretty beat up and can't charge
because the USB port is disconnected. I've been using a spare GTA02 as
a charger, but every time I switch out batteries the clock resets to
12/12/1999 16:00 and it's a pain to re-set it since network time doesn't
work. I couldn't find any information on the wiki about replacing the
CMOS battery to solve this problem; has anyone here dealt with this same
problem before and have recommendations?
I disassembled a GTA02 enough to see the battery, but it didn't yield to
gentle pressure trying to slide out of its bracket and I don't want to
destroy things too badly in my attempt to fix them so I didn't push too
hard. Because of this, I don't even know the exact type of button cell
to buy to replace it. Any help would be appreciated.
