I have to nominate the Okidata personal laser printer line as some of 
the worst designed crap ever.  Everything is packed in so tightly and 
overlaps that you have to practically disassemble it while making a 
detailed map in order to change certain plastic flags.

If you don't make a map and you don't have an official service manual 
you may never get it back together again.
