2003 CL500 Trunk Lid Recall

I have a 2003 CL500 that I just got with 57,000 miles on it. Everything is beautiful except the trunk lid does not close properly, and when you open the trunk manually, the lid will not stay up. I see that the NHTSA had a recall 04v285000 and it was MB 2004050015, but when I took it into the dealer, he says my car was "not affected" and my problems must be related to wear and tear. MBusa customer service says the same thing. Has anyone else had this problem, and can someone tell me from the VIN number when the vehicle was manufactured? The vIN is WDBPJ75J33A036753. Any help with how I can get satisfaction on this would be appreciated.
