Tip your iMac on its face (screen) on a soft towel to prevent scratches. The hatch to the RAM slots is right there looking at you. If you go in behind the ram, you'll see the battery slot. Suggest you take out the RAM to make the job easier, but handle carefully, earth yourself to the iMac metal chassis with the power plug still in the wall socket BUT TURNED OFF.

For further assistance, try YouTube with the keywords 'Take Apart iMac G3'.

Manuals are also available from Apple's website.
