Yeah, that scene made me laugh even though it was so dramatic. First, he had to climb up to reach this thing and then he had to kick it into place repeatedly until it was fine again. Poor Kirk. And who the hell designed this? I hope Kirk wrote a letter of complaint to the ship's designers.
Just for the record, that's how I change spark plugs.

I saw that, too, and I felt so bad for Kirk, plus with the time running out it was very frustrating, so J.J. did a great job of keeping the tension ratcheted up.
