Default Insert character to multiple cells

I am trying to find a function that will insert a character mid text to multiple cells. I need to make this "3AAA3" into this "3AAA03". I have tried the replace function and it does not seem to be working. Please help!!!

You don't give much information as to the possible variety of data with which you will be dealing, but with
3AAA3 in A1, =REPLACE(A1,LEN(A1),0,"0") will result in 3AAA03

Are all of the values you need to alter 3AAA3 and all should end up 3AAA03?
