    Help, Dropped tool!

    I was putting the intercooler clamps back on and I dropped a screw driver in the engine compartment and it rolled underneath the engine. How do I get this out. I have reached everywhere imaginable and I cannot see it. Where should I look? Will this hurt anything if it stays down there? Is there anyway to get it out that anyone can think of?

    Did u try one of those telescoping magnets or even a mirror to try to see where it went?? I am still finding sockets that get dropped lol.

    Wink

    +1 I drooped a screwdriver under my engine just the other day was putting the water pipe on the exaust manifold for my ex ic. I got 1 of those telescopic magnets look bit like a screwdriver but got a magnet down the middle tht pull out. it may take a while but u will eventually get it out. It shudnt rele doo any harm but would be best to get it out, u would prob hear it rattling about when on the water whuch would be annoying. Hope u have luck with your fishing trip, unare nt the 1st and i dnt suppose u will be the last

    Sorry, You know how I am. Forget the magnet and save some $$. Get an XXX large T-shirt, wet it. drop it in front of the engine. get the hose and water down behind the t- shirt, tilt the trailer and t-shirt soak with water acts like a Sqeee-G and drag everything behind....screwdriver, washers, nuts, bolts, MM sockets, dead rats, quarters, dimes, nickels, snap on wrench, Zip ties, tape........canadian passport? rusted allen wrench.......it's like "Home Depo" in a budget! I am not kidding. Try it.

    thats a top idea. i rigged up a garden hose to a hi powered vac to suck it onto the end and drag it out. might try the shirt idea and have a go at the lucky dip

    no, it won't hurt. it may actually work its way to the back where you might see it.
