Washing machine & car key

I love our 05 147 jtd I thought when we bought it we done ok also making sure that there were 2 remote keys so this morning to my horror my wife left the remote key in her pocket and put the washing on
Firstly I have removed the battery but before I totally destroy the plastic casing is it gently pries open the two halves to get in?
Secondly whats my chances?
Finally where will I find the code to get a new one and whats the likely cost.
PS: I do have all the info in the wallet only code I can see is for the stereo

No, you need to prise off the alfa badge and remove the screw to open it.

Fingers crossed its not knackered, don't know what the exact costs are but have seen on other threads its in excess of 300, and dealer only, but worth calling them if a new battery doesn't solve it

There's a guy on eBay called Chris (i think) who repairs Alfa keys with high success rates:
