Great car, small annoyances

Hi there,

I am now on my third Benz, a beautiful 2004 CLK Cabriolet. My other cars were a 1959 190 SL and a 1988 E-Class. I love the CLK but there are a couple of annoying problems. There is a musty smell coming from the A/C unit that has resisted all efforts to eliminate. I leave the windows open in the garage and turn on the "rest" feature to leave the fan running after driving. Still no relief. The easy exit feature for the driver's seat has stopped working intermittently and is currently not operational. The steering wheel raises when the key is removed but the seat doesn't move. Finally, today, the third stop light lens fell off for the second time. Apparently, the assembly cannot take the shock of closing the trunk lid. The dealer replaced it under warranty but the car is out of warranty now and I don't know if the dealer will replace it again. I would appreciate any advice on how to pressure the dealer to do the right thing.

Sorry for all of the grumbling....I really love the car and am always getting compliments on its looks. Dave
