I hesitate to answer this without direct experience on 9-5 seats-this is a pending Memorial Weekend? job so I will give an unsupported opinion...I will also check my 9-5 and compare it to the 9000. The seat module failed on the 9000 so I encountered the same problem. Generally the 9000 can be rolled back using a flexible square bit driver provided in the emergency tool kit every 9000 came with ( driver also for manual movement of the sunroof). However, I just could not get that tool to mate up with the motor so I removed the seat cushion with the steel seat bottom support in situ and
was then able to access the motor with the square bit. I would hope that the 9-5 has a similar arrangement...to speed things along I used a flexible extension driver with a square bit (from a bit driver set) and a battery powdered drill. Once the seat cushion and support is removed accessing the motor is fairly easy and the option of rolling the seat forward and back can now be accomplished although its very very slow going doing it manually. I will have look at the 9-5 and see if the seat is similar as far as motors and cushion removal.
