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.
