Default 2006 Audi A8L key fob low battery signal

I recently got the low battery signal warning for one of my car keys. I'm planing to get some new batteries but not sure if it need to be done at the dealership or I can just change the batteries myself without any troubles (reset Or reprogram).

Default DIY

Enter H/W store or watch counter with key in hand ready to open up. Find right batteries and just change out. No problems and no memory loss on my 2006 key.
