not sure what they are in yours but the ones in mine were £7.85 each at fords, and £1.25 for the same ones in my local motor factors

If the keyfob is the same as the MK2, you can take the fob apart without taking the battery out, and make a note of the number on it, then pop out and get one, then swop them over. The fob shouldn't need re-programing, I have had my battery out for an hour and it hasn't lost the code. Note if it does need programing, follow the instructions on the Mirez site, you will still be able to start the car, that is the PATS programing, nothing to do with the battery.
