Colin.. don't look, just follow this to the T and you'll have that socket.

Stand at the passenger fender
Reach your arm straight down under the ps pump on th subframe. Move your fingers slowly and ...yup, that'* the socket.

I have locks on all my extensions these days. Junkyarding around here means the cars have no wheels and lay on the ground. Good luck getting anything back. A magnet is a must have as is an inspection mirror and light.

This is hands down one of the best cordless lights I've owned.

With exception to the first version of the black and decker light bar. since they changed that..it'* not worth mentioning.

I did a tune up on my Grand prix the other day and found a wratchet extention with a 15 mm on it - stuck in the bottom of the center radiator support while trying to find a wrench I dropped in the grill area - not to mention half a plastic yard bag stuck up in there too.Win some loose some.

I've found a few tools working on cars. Found a 10mm socket in a place that could have only gotten there when the car was built.

Thankfully the only car that i have worked on that ate tools was my Grand Prix....can't remember what it was though...I am sure it fell out on some country back road that I use to flog the Prix on.....dang that car was fun....I hope the Bonneville doesn't decide to acquire this taste...that would suck....I mean, it already likes my blood...lol
