The screws are actually torx heads and are probably well seized. I would suggest you consider removing the entire assembly by removing the trunk liner and removing all applicable fasteners. You can then attack the problem from both sides. Specialized penetrating fluid improves your chances - multiple sprays over a few hours. Leave overnight and give it a try. I can't recall all the specifics but if the screw penetrates through the light fixture, a helper could turn the torx head while you can turn the screw shaft the same way with pliers. This reduces the chance of breakage. If successful, use new and greased screws to re-assemble. Good luck - a time consuming job for what is normally a 10 minute process. Saab should have used stainless steel screws for the light covers - would have cost only a few pennies extra at volume.
