I was installing my trunk brace a little while ago and I dropped the bolt on the drivers side behind the metal. How the heck to I find it? :-( I tried sticking my fingers, long nose pliers, then moved it with a. Screw driver and it seems to have fallen further deeper into the land of no return. I need help.....


please!!

Get about a foot long stick and tape a small magnetic on the tip. I got it out that way.

Is there any other way anyone can think of the get the hardware unstuck out of the crevice of never see it again?

Magnet was less than productive. Its lodged in there pretty good and I cant even get it to budge with a screw driver or wire or anything.

lol i was just thinking earlier "man i wish i had some flexy grabby thing with a led and camera on the end" because i know thats the only possible way id get it out short of cutting a hole in the frame there.

i purchased mine from procivic (the other brand lol) and they are gonna hook me up with more hardware to mount it so its not the end of the world anymore.

thanks for the suggestions :D
