BMW glovebox flashlight repair

E34 BMWs came with a neat rechargable flashlight in the glovebox. It serves mostly as a light for said glovebox, but can be removed to find lost change under the seat. Mine didn't work, so I investigated.

Turns out the NiCad batteries popped at some point. I found a nice walkthrough here and ordered new batteries for just a few dollars.

Disassembled, with dead batteries. Lots of corrosion to clean up.

New batteries fitted

We have light! Just awaiting solder and re-gluing the case.
