That's not too bad if it's out of warranty.

I just changed the batteries in both front & rear TPMS Sensor Transmitters of my 08 C-14. It's Easy with a good soldering iron, flux & solder! YouTube has a couple of videos. Mine work great!! I can do the "non sealed" ones no problem if someone wants them done. Haven't looked at the ones on my 2016 yet but I'm sure they can't be hard to do.

The newer ones on your '16 are completely different; from Schrader rather than the mfg. in France, and it is a potted design. You <can> change the batteries but it involves cutting tools to open the sensor body and then a very careful battery removal followed but trying to solder to wires buried in epoxy. A friend of mine has one open right now and we are trying to figure out how to get the battery out without destroying the lead and / or PC board underneath the battery.
