Replacement battery for 8510C

We have been experiencing two troubling behaviors in one of our 8510C units:
1.  The time and data are flaky (not so bad, just a pain)
2.  The unit is not able to reliably store calibration data/instrument setup.

The manual says that the battery in the 8510C is for the date and time.  Further, replacement of the battery is not to be accomplished by the dumb user - rather they want us to replace the entire A7 board.

Anyone know how to replace the battery?  Know the right part number for a modern battery?  Is the loss of calibration data related to the battery or is it some other more heinous problem that will cost me lots of $$?
