Can i play my wii without the back on it?

My wii remote seems like it's working it's flashing blue but the back that goes on it is completely fucked. Orange battery acid has leaked all over it and there's nothing I can do, I've left it to dry and cleaned it but it still looks the same! I'm gonna get a replacement back but can I play... show more My wii remote seems like it's working it's flashing blue but the back that goes on it is completely fucked.

I'm gonna get a replacement back but can I play the wii without it? Do I need it to play?
