CMOS Battery sticky pad HP Elitebook 745 G2?

10 minutes ago, lukeconfused said:

Seems like a funny topic but sticky pads to hold a CMOS battery in place is new to me.

 

I was doing a few upgrades to this laptop and I noticed that there was a rattle, opened it out to find the CMOS battery lose and it appeared to be held in place with a sticky pad. In which was no longer sticky.

 

Just wondering if this is fine? And if it is, is there a specific type of sticky pad I need to replace it with? I wouldn't bother if I was keeping it but giving it to a family member and the rattle might scare them.

Little bit of electrical tape to hold it down should do the trick.
