Still trundling on after 16 years, but has some annoyances!

The reason I was motivated to add a few lines on the site was that I have spent about an hour trying to figure out how to change the battery on the car's key fob! It should be easy but is a masterpiece of poor design.
Eventually, with the help of a YouTube guide, I managed to force the key apart, breaking one clip as I did so. It is really difficult and awkward.
Having got the battery in the thing still doesn't work anyway, so I will open the doors the old fashioned way.
Another thing that should be simple on the car is changing the time on the clock, but again it is difficult, unless you have patience and use a pair of pliers- otherwise it hurts the figures. Ridiculously difficult.
I also find the demister poor - not as good as the one on an old Rover I had years before, which was effective and simple to operate.
