How do you remove a clock movement?
Clock movements can also be held in place at the back of the case by using small screws or built in “pressure clips”. In the case of screws, then just unscrew whatever is there. With pressure clips, press both of the clips away from the movement at the same time and the movement should come free.

Why is my clock ticking but not moving?
The center hex nut could be too tight – if your clock is running slowly you can loosen this about a quarter turn. If the second hand is not moving, give it a flick it in the right direction. If it doesn’t start moving again on its own, put the battery in backwards for a few seconds and then return it to normal.
Why did the hands of the clock move after you put the battery in the wall clock?
It sounds like the hands have come off the central spindle. This could be caused by the fact that the motor isn’t fixed to the back of the clock properly, so when you grip it to fit the new battery it pulls the hands into the dial and loosens them.
