Um... because when it comes to safety and/or warrenty items if the **typical** owner were able to access them. Ford can be held accountable in court. For instance if you removed your seat.. then put it back in and left out or cross threaded one of the screws.. then got into a wreck and the seat came loose.. you could sue Ford motor company for allowing **you** to easily remove your seat.
Get mad at your local lawyer.. not Ford. Same thing goes for high warrenty item. MAF.. ect..
And don't get me wrong either. I'm not defending Ford. I too think that people in life need to take accountibility for thier own actions. Too many of my fellow americans are mechanically stupid, do stupid things with a wrech, and them blame other people for thier problems. And the extremely dumb ones try to hide behind a lawyer to get something for nothing.
Just go to your local autparts store and buy a set of torx bits. Perferably impact wrench rated ones.
