engineering pet peeves

Recommended Posts

Once in a while we all come across engineering screw ups that defy logic. My biggest one is light bulbs that are not accessable. We did a front turn signal on a Cadillac the other day. Remove the fog light/signal assembly, disassemble the housing, change bulb, reinstall. There was no access hole. How much education is needed to know an incandescent bulb is going to burn out in a few years? This was a solid one hour job on the lift. $90 to replace the turn signal bulb. The same sentiment goes for headlights that require bumper removal. Unacceptable. This is not a packaging issue, 2 seconds reveals where a panel could have been built in. 30 cents more plastic.
