key problems

  1. Replacement key battery cover or shell

    9-5 Workshop
    I dropped the key for my 2001 9-5 and one of the little tabs that holds the battery cover in place broke. So now the batter cover is taped on. Can I get a replacement battery cover somewhere? Or maybe a new key shell and swap the innards?

  6. Key not recognised in ignition...urgent help please!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have just purchased a Saab 9-3 turbo convertible and only has one key as it was a Cat C write off. The repair work has been carried out and just taken for MOT today.
