See, now mine's nowt like that. It must have been replaced at some point with the newer generation model, so I'm kinda hoping it's not too bad in there. I think one of the threads I've happened across showed its internals and it has the newer (Maplin style) heat-shrunk Ni-MH batts. But because the unit is more rounded, I'm thinking it's harder to get into.

Yes there are the "old style" electronics/firmware inside the newer shape casing on some cars, can't recall the exact part number though.

I had/have the older shaped body and just cut it open with a fine saw.
Still not working well though, very weak at times despite new batteries.

I realise I'm going a bit off topic here as this is the lighting section, so I'll carry this on in the alarm refurb thread
