We have a battery operated Black & Decker screw driver and have no manual. We would like to know how to open the screw driver to replace the batteries. Right now it is not working.

SOURCE: Won't charge fully
If your warranty has expired, you're best off buying a new drill. Replacing batteries will quickly add up to the cost of a new drill.
I know they cost a lot more, but, if you want something that will last a lot longer, look at a Milwaukee, DeWalt, Makita, Bosch, Hitachi for your replacement. Milwaukee actually guarantees their LiIon batteries will last 1,000 charges or longer.

Black & Decker stopped doing battery packs for the older screwdrivers, like the 9018, some time ago so you cannot get them.
However you can still buy replacement NiCad, Sub C, 1.2v, tagged batteries that will do the job on the older 2.4v models as NiCad batteries for use in power tools are exempt under the European ban on importing NiCad batteries where used in power tools (Specific Exemption).
When you open up the screwdriver look at the positioning of the batteries and the tags/connectors and solder them together the same way.
So all you need is a soldering iron to join the centre tags together and then trim the end tags, top and bottom, to the width of the live/negative connectors and you have got a new battery pack.
It doesn't have to be pretty but after a small investment and a little effort it sure beats paying out £30 to £50 for a new screwdriver. I have done this for my older Black & Decker and Bosch screwdrivers which all work like new again.

I found that squeezing the trigger at the very top would make mine work every time. Problem is the trigger does not have enough travel to depress the switch far enough. If you were to epoxy a thin plastic "shim" where the triger meets the switch, problem solved. I am assuming yours suffers from same fault as mine .
