Hi guys, I need some advice.

The rear intake HLA decided to take a dive over the back of the engine.
Straight behind the head.

I'm not sure where it went, but it did not fall out underneath the car.
I cant see or feel it, and a magnetic wand didnt work.

Any advice?

prolly around the starter motor, theres a spot there where parts can fall and land ontop of the starter case and the block and you can feel it.

(I love it when the 13mm and the small extension drops and wedges itself there)

round things roll! keep looking.

Try a small mirror (girls make-up mirror but don't get caught by them) and a good torch. Sometimes looking at night helps as the ambient light is not a distraction.

Try looking on the pipe at the back of the block, bolted to bellhousing(?).

If you use an open 240V globe (no cover) be aware that if you drop it and it smashes it could make the whole car live.
