Hallo Patryk,

You cannot replace them CR2032s (or equivalents) for two reasons:
- you have to remove the recharge circuit first
- the older RTCs use more current and therefore exhaust the battery too quick.

What I did with some older PC boards and cards: I connected the battery with the board/card using some wires and used some two-sided tape to fix it some where in a corner of the PC where it cannot do any harm if it would start to leak.
Disadvantage: removing the board/card takes some more effort. But as that isn't done on daily basis, it is acceptable IMHO.

Met vriendelijke groet / With kind regards,
