Ok, here's one for everybody.
Finally got around to getting a set of short dogbones (the upper engine mounts, not pet treats), and as I take off one of the nuts off the old one, the nut falls into the engine bay. I hear it go "plink" on something, but it never hits the ground. As I'm looking for the nut, I manage to knock a 7" long wrench in their too. Again, "plink", and nothing falls out the bottom. I spent more than an hour looking, and found nothing. So here's the question: does anybody know where all the stuff ends up that falls in there? Is there any particular place that eats tools and fasteners in our cars?
I always drop screws, clips, sockets etc. Last week I dropped a screwdriver head and I got a big magnet and put it in the area I dropped it and got it back. Just an Idea, get a big stong magnet and just stick it into the area you dropped it.
