Welcome. My name is Tommy and would be glad to assist.

If you grab the detector while mounted and rotate it Counter Clockwise, it will unlatch from the base for removal.
Once unlatched, pull the detector away from the ceiling or wall where it is located.

Looking on the rear of the detector, you will see the battery for removal.

When re-installing, you will align the tabs on the detector with the base, then rotate it Clockwise, and it will latch back into place on the base.

and see page 3 if you wish to see the explanation from the manual.
