Hi,

I dropped a 10p coin down the gap in between my handbreak and the plastic cover/protection box that surrounds it. I was wondering if its dangerour to have it down there? should I take it to a garage to get it looked at or will it just remain there until a later date. I'm not technical enough to take apart the hand break box areas- so that's a no go! Thanks in advance for any help.

Don't worry about it. There's nothing in there it can really interfere with.

The only thing is that it might slide about when braking/cornering - in which case it's going to proper annoy you.

Don't worry about it, I somehow managed to drop my spare key in the same place on the day i got my car :lol: , drove from 20 miles with it there and it was fine. I fished it out with a piece of wire when i got home but I was worried to drive it when I did it and felt like a massive idiot :P

I'm sorry but I'd have to strip it down to find it.

The say that if you look after the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves....right!.

I wouldnt worry about it, you never know it might roll out one day.

I doubt it'll roll back out, unless the the government have got gravity-defying 10p's to go with that stupid new pound coin they're on about. :)
