It's very easy, I did it last week. Just make sure you're earthed when you open the case and there's 2 clips which you push gently back.

Make sure everything is switched and unplugged.
There should be a little clip holding it on just push the clip outwards allowing the battery to pop up and battery should click in.

What is the mater with your old one.
Are you loosing time and date with it.
It may affect which drive runs at start up when removed and you may have to change the driver back to the proper one.
Maybe wait and get some more information before you proceed.
