cmos battery already dead? Intel NUC NUC7i3BNHX1

So my Intel NUC NUC7i3BNHX1 is complaining over no time set in bios after being unplugged for some time. Is the cmos already dead after only 2 years + some months?

 

The little I read I need a new 2032 battery with cables? And take out the entire board.

 

Any ideas where I can get this in Norway, or shipped int. Else having to rma this thing.

ok, 5 batteries arrived for 2$. Changed red\blue wire to correct place and installed.

 

Had a fright turning it on, first took long time and device boot not found. Then into bios set clock and try again and finally it booted.

 

Really bad that batteries last 2 years, but excuse to clean the fan.
