The wires are soldered at the battery end and plug into the PCB. Pull the plug straight out toward the edge of the board. Draw yourself a picture of where the wires go on the battery as one is positive, one negative and the third goes to the thermal gizmo wedged between the cells.
I don't remember for sure whether the cells are Nicd or NmHi but can buy them from Digikey for less than $4 each.
