How is that done? Does one have to disassemble the SY?

Disassemble only as far as taking off the bottom cover.
and test the battery in the usual way, with SY power off red wire of multimeter to battery positive and black to negative.
I'll add some photos later if that helps :-)

edit: some pictures .... using an SY77 board for example

remove the bottom cover to SY35, somewhere on the main board will be a
coin battery with the yellow edge on it, as in picture below.

Red probe to the top of the battery (which is +ve) black probe can go on any of the ground
points on the board like in the photo below, one of the screw mounts with a metal tab.
a new battery will show 3.2v if meter shows less than 1v id change it soon.

BTW this is still the original battery as far I can see, there is no sign of it being replaced
from the joints on the opposite side of the board, unless the tech/owner before me has godlike soldering skills :-D

I found some info on the battery when its in need of replacing; as an FYI thing.

But I also read something (was it here) about the backup for sounds is a due to 'some-capacitor'? :think:
