CR2032 Battery with Amiga 4000 REV D mobo

The coin battery on my 4000 Rev D motherboard has started to go bad, I notice Amigakit selling a similar looking battery (CR2032), just wondering if it is a suitable replacement?

almost certainly it is. be sure the old one wasn't rechargeable.
but that battery is 'common as mud'. practically *every* PC uses it, you can find it in many stores.. and it would be better to replace it with socket+batt for easier 'update' next time.

Better you take a photo so we can advise you, otherwise we may give incorrect info and ultimately you could damage or destroy your board.
