Because instead of using a wire bail or other gadget to secure that relay, the engineers did what they did. Cost less, and lasted for the design lifetime, but makes a mess out of repair. My guess would be they did not like that they had to do it that way.

I'm more upset that it failed @ 93,000 miles, and wasn't designed to throw a code beforehand. I got a code for an 02 sensor failure and a warning light for low windshield washer fluid, neither of which will leave me stranded. That's insane.

It represents the politics of privilege. Driving is a privilege, and thus subject to political control in the form of licensure and regulation.
