I think if I saw that on the showroom floor I'd walk away from the car.

Two bolts for the brace, lift out the washer reservoir. Not too difficult.

As opposed to removing the clamps and taking out the batt?

In what world is that okay? In my car I disconnect the battery and lift it out. I don't need to remove any braces, or fluid reservoirs, first.

Dodge has one you have to take off a wheel and remove the inner fender, Pontiac had one you had to remove the fender.
You ought to see how bad headlight bulbs are on some, grill and bumper removal.

Then realize you are probably one of them and not the exception that you think you are.

The problem, as a general rule, isn't actually stupidity - it's inattentiveness. Most humans are actually fairly smart, when you can get them to apply their intelligence. It's that precondition that fouls most people up.

For example, if you ask most people if texting and driving is a bad idea, they will say no. However, if you ask them that in a text message while they are driving, they will probably say no by texting you back...

I'll say. To change a headlight on my Chevy HHR, you have to remove the corresponding front tire. Once you do that, it's easy-peasy.

He got the wrong thing. He wanted a turbo charger, got an alternator. He should call it biomechanical. I still think it looks cool.

My ex-father-in-law had a 70-something Ford van where the heat shields on the exhaust manifold interfered with access to one spark plug. I helped him work on it in roughly 85 because it was running rough. When I finally pulled that particular plug the electrode had melted all the way down to the ceramic insulator, i.e. it had not yet ever been replaced.
My friend was telling me about his son who knows NOTHING about cars and told him his car was making funny sounds etc, and basically needed oil. So later the kid was complaining 'why do they have to make it so difficult to add oil? its such a tiny hole,' etc. Turns out he had tried pouring it into where the dipstick goes.

On some modern engines, the actual oil fill is so hard to get to that this can be a reasonable approach if you are patient...

BMW has started removing dipsticks from cars because your oil sensor will tell you when you have a problem. Of course it will.
