What Do The Manufacturers Think?

Around my house a random fix to something that is broken is nothing uncommon.  The other day my wife was complaining about something not working in her car.  I went out and tried to see what the problem was.  After almost 30 minutes I found that there were two retaining rings that had bent.  In most cases I am pretty good about fixing the car, but this time I had to do some research on how to fix the problem.  In the end I found the solution, and fixed the problem.

Why do the manufacturers of things try to make it so hard to fix things?  I am pretty sure that they want to make the money in the repairs rather than having the regular person fixing it.
