Whilst the Mrs does housey things, I decided I'd give the inlet manifold a clean. While taking off the EGR solenoid bracket, I dropped a nut right into the depths of the engine. I heard it roll so I'm content that its right on engine bay floor. Should I panic? I've tried to reach it but can't.

Didn't get round to cleaning the manifold after spending ages trying to rescue said nut!

does your car have a plastic under tray? try giving it a bang and listen for the nut rattling about.

Not what you're looking for?
