Mijn probleem

The battery needs service message was appearing

Mijn oplossing

I started the full board removal... but it quickly got very hard and hairy, so bailed and just removed the battery. I don't really care about my speakers though so was ok with putting them at risk of permanent damage. I saw the risk of removing and reinstalling the complete board as much more than losing my speakers. So, I went to town on removing the battery alone carefully tilting my computer away from the motherboard / speakers portion. Took a bit of prying and waiting for the glue solvent to do its job but it came off without an issue. Only issue I came across was after I permanently placed the new battery I had not taken enough notice or care to line up the battery screw holes with those on the board... so, my battery is a few millimeters to the left and the battery circuit board overlap a bit of the rest of the mother board. Seems to be working ok though without being screwed down.

Mijn advies

Make sure that you properly align the new battery while installing it.
