    ya i tried a magnet but the mag is to big to fit is such a small whole its driving me nuts.....the last thing i want to do is take off the blower and bang it out by fliping it upside down but it seems i might have to do that :'(

    what about those magnets that are like the size of a pen.. you can pull em out so if you drop a screw down in the engine bay? iono might work?

    is there a way you could get some double sided tape on a screw driver or something to get it out.

    Another little trick you can try,that my father showed me is to take some mechanics wire,and wrap a few coils around your magnet,and leave whatever length you need at the end,to get into tight places.....like fishing for keystones in blowers.lol
