After reading Fred H's recent post about retrieving a lost screw, I was wondering how careful you have to be using a magnet trying to capture lost screws/bolts and assorted hardware down the "Honda Hole"? I worry about getting a magnet around the ECM or other computer devices and really goofing things up. Any thoughts or experience? ChuckR

No problem. ECM is in a shielded box and even though you could
theoretically mess something up with a strong enough field,
you'd never get a magnet that large anywhere into those tiny cavities.
Besides, we all know there is a miniature black hole hidden under the shelter,
where all the dropped fasteners go, and that will absorb the energy from many magnet .... :roll: :wink:
Don't yuh just love technical talk? :a13:
