I have taken off sequentially both of the hub covers (non drive side) but cannot figure it out. There is no real slot for the batteries and the batteries just roll around in there and stick to the magnet. I am presuming that the magnet is for the cadence and speed calculations, and they display accurately on the console (but do not need the batteries in the hub to do so) . The space is tight but if someone could post pictures to help me (or a video) I would GREATLY appreciate it!

When you get a chance, will you post pics of what you are describing about the inside of the hub cover?
