Hey today me and my boyfriend were installing my skunk2 lowering springs, as he was taking the three top bolts off the struts and one of the bolts accidently fell and went down beind where the top bolts are, where the wiper blade motors are. My question is how do I get the socket out?

Yeah, take off the plastic cover and ther is a flat metal piece that goes tower to tower and i'll bet you'll find it there.

I did the exact same thing a few days ago... luckily my friend had that magnetic tool that udumkid mentioned and we managed to fish it out of there. Definately pick one of those up, they're a life saver!

i had the same problem when i was doing my suspension, and i used a goose neck magnet to try and get it out but i could not find it so i just took of the black plastic and found it.
