Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
I have a 52 reg Saab 9-5 3.0 Tid Arc and the display says the key fob battery needs replacing, according to the car manual this is a job for the dealership.
Is this not just a straight forward battery replacement I can do myself?
A pushpin inserted into the hole with a push pry motion pops mine right off with no damage.

Just push a small diameter allen key into the hole and it will pop open. Then gently open from the side with a finger nail or spreading knife.Replacement battery required is a CR1632.

CR1632 is the battery you need for your key fob. A small paperclip inserted into the hole on the side of the fob with a bit of force will open the panel on the back. Make sure your car is closed and then you press unlock 5 times to synch it with your car again.
