WS-C3016B lithium battery replacement?

I've recently acquired a Cisco WS-C3016B. Unfortunately, it appears as though the onboard battery is dead. (The error message on boot: FATAL SYSTEM ERROR: SS_RTC_Initialize: The Clock's Battery is Dead.)

Is this a servicable battery I can replace? (Don't call me an idiot, but I couldn't find the battery when I opened up the case.) Or is the battery embedded in another component?

The clock battery is actually imbedded in the Dallas chip. So the only way to replace the battery is to replace the Dallas chip. This is something the factory would most likely have to do.
