No access panel for that. That is located on the motherboard. You will have to take of the keyboard to get access to it.

How to replace internal battery for Sony PCG-955A


If you mean the cmos battery you will probably need to take the laptop apart - if you are lucky it may be under the keyboard - look at the screws on the back and see if any show symbols for keyboards.

There is a vaio manual here.

CMOS battery Sony Vaio PCG-4G1L


Instructions
    • 1 Open the Vaio screen until you can easily access the keyboard.
    • 2 Locate the plastic bar that borders the top of the keyboard. Insert the flat head screwdriver at one end of the bar and gently pry it up until you can grip the edge with your fingers.
    • 3 Pry the other side of the bar up with the screwdriver and pull out the entire bar, being careful to mind the ribbon cord that connects the keyboard to the computer.
    • 4 Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard that secure it to the computer. Slide the keyboard up and place it to the side.
    • 5 Remove the four screws on the exposed metal plate that covers the motherboard and remove it. You should now see the CMOS battery in the bottom-right-hand corner of the motherboard.
    • 6 Remove the battery by gently pulling it up and off the motherboard. Replace it with the same model battery (available at any computer store or online). Reassemble the computer the same way you took it apart.
