the M92 is very simple to disassemble and reassemble and if you can use a screwdriver you could try.
Maybe is the battery or the speaker..
There are some technologies for these alarms: RF and magnetic. I think it's more likely the first method.

A technical description of different systems can be found here:

http://electronics.howstuffworks.com...ing-device.htm (page 4 onwards)

Normally the triggering part is a resonator (coil or coil+capacitor) in the 8 MHz range that is part of the circuit electronics and thus, cannot be removed/changed. I don't think it will be easy to diagnose without knowing device electronics schematics and alarm specifications.

Maybe a metal case container is a valid workaround....checking to wrap it with 2-3 turns of aluminum foil can be useful as a PoC to determine this before purchasing one.

One of these days I will carry mine on walk to see if I suffer the same issue.
