I have a 2007 saab 9-7 and lost my 2nd key to it recently. Come to find out the keys are on world wide back order and next to impossible to find. I called my local dealers and they said it could be over 3 months before they could get me a new remote. I searched around the internet and got in contact with someone over at ikeyless.com. They have the ability to recondition keys, I went ahead and ordered one and it came in looking next to new with a new insert as well. I took it to the dealer and they were able to program it no problem. I don't know how ikeyless.com does it but I would suggest calling them if you need to replace your 9-3 or 9-5 smartkey, they seem to be the only ones in the world who have them. And it shipped to me in days not weeks. Hope this helps someone out.
