One' of the worst designs I've seen was my uncle's 96 Honda Accord. To remove the front brake disk requires you to unbolt the CV shaft and remove the hub bearing assembly. Then put that in a clamp and unbolt the disk from the hub.

On my 95 Neon everything was cake. Even changed the fuel pump assembly with out dropping the tank. Well, everything but the heater core that required removing the entire dash assembly. The only weirdness was that the crank pulley is a 6 ton press fit and requires a special puller. It's carried by Autozone and free to rent.

The worst plugs I've ever done was on my friends 99 Caravan with the 3.0. The cowl comes halfway over the engine. You have to get to some from under the van.
