    This one?

    In that hole for the key ring there is a little clip. You can carefully pry up on the clip with a small screw driver... careful now, don't snap off the little bit of plastic. That will open up the fob and your battery is right there.

    I'm almost positive I have the same one as you. I tried to upload a photo (from my phone)with no success.... but I had this same problem, I thought maybe I had to take it to the dealership, then I dropped it and like magic it came open, so now I know. So there is a small seam around the remote where the softer plastic and harder plastic meet, right above the word saab. That seam will open. I used a thin knife to jimmy into the seam and it did open up. I left a small mark on my remote from the knife, so be careful. I would do it right above the key hole as to not be obvious. Right under the lock button seemed easiest but left a more visable mark. I'm sure there is some sort of tool but I have no idea and made due. Good luck!

    I think you mean this one:


    If so, I found this on the 9-5 manual. You need to remove that little screw to open the remote.
