Yeah same, I didn't have to remove the battery but I did have to remove my massive RX 6900 XT to get to the 2 pins under the card. I have a small form factor build it's so very difficult to remove that card.
There really needs to be a caution for people stuck in the past 😛
I since bought a reset switch for my BIOS if I ever have to do it again it will be the last time I have to remove the card. You can use a standard case reset switch but be careful it's not accidently pressed.
