Brector3 provided a highly informative procedure for replacing R9500 shaver batteries. Can you please provide more detail on how to "disjoint" the trimmer to gain access to the third screw? ...

To access one of the screws on the back or the unit, the trimmer must be partially removed. When you pop up the trimmer for normal use, it pivots near the top of the shaver. At this pivot point, each side of the trimmer has a tiny plastic pin that inserts into a socket of the shaver body. You can insert smaill flat screwdriver between the side of the trimmer and the shaver body and gently pry the pins out of their sockets

The trimming blades of my Shaver do not work. my hair got stuck in it. It seem the blades do not move across each other.

Assuming you have cleaned and lubed the blades, then you need to dismantle requiring a torx screwdriver.
Firstly, take off the top cover and remove the foil itself. There are two torx screws there, and another one where the power charger goes in at the bottom.
Once those 3 are removed, pull apart the main black/grey sections. There are 2 more screws holding the battery in place, remove them and the battery. Next bit is tricky - where the 2 grey 'dimples' are, gently loosen the two sections which should leave the black slider holding the trimmer and just one side of the grey outer shell. It felt to me it was going to break, but came apart without issue.
I couldn't work out how to seperate the black trimmer section here, but you can buy replacement trimmer sections so assuming it's possible somehow. From here, I cleaned, and soaked the blades with lube overnight. Then put back together again.

What is the procedure for replacing the batteries in the Remington Titanium R 9500?

There are three screws on the back of the shaver to be removed. One is easy to see. The second is visable when you extend the trimmer. The third is hard to get to and the trimmer must be disjointed at the top to get to it. Once all three screws are removed, you can remove the back cover. There are two batteries. To remove them you will need to unsnap and remove the long metal clip and then unsolder the wires connected to the batteries. There may also be a gummy substance holding a wire to the side of one of the batteries. You will need to use a razor blade to seperate it off along the side of the battery. Once the old batteries are removed, you can solder in new batteries and ten reassemble the shaver.

You will find batteries at See link below. You will need to order two.

If you are unable to do this repair yourself, can do it for you. See link below.

Suddenly,the trimmer blade of my braun 8985 shaver has started literally plucking my hair..i don't know wht the problem is

If you've used the shaver for a very long time, it could be that the trimmer part has worn out. You can buy a replacement body for your 8985 that includes the trimmer, from Replacement is not very difficult (not soldering involved). You pull off the bottom plug socket, take off the sides, unscrew 4 torx screws on the body, and the shaver comes apart. Good luck!

8595 Pop-Up Trimmer Broken

This is the best solution I've found. (Found it thanks to another forum). Its the whole casing which includes the trimmer. Frankly, I'm not going to argue with the price.

The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom (opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit of prying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have that off, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4 screws opening up the interior.

Be careful at this point because there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take a picture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was when you opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (mine had 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it with the new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!
