Anyone handy with a spanner want to earn 100?

Hi guys, well some bad luck. spraying my map sensor with carb cleaner I decided to give the manifold a spray down the little hole the map sensor sits in................


the plastic end has come off and gone down into hole

Took throttle body off and can't be seen.

Sold after kicking myself for a few weeks I punished myself lol! and sold her on ebay as spares or repairs for a fraction of her value.

The buyer came with a video stethoscope and Hoover but couldn't get it out as gone down hole.

Dispite me listing all faults the buyer pulled out as he couldn't drive it home. To good to scrap, So I will just keep her :-)



So I really need some help, the manifold needs to be removed, plastic bit taken out and refitted.

So any one out there handy with a spanner wants to earn 100 cash, for a morning work?

I can supply good company, lol! unlimited tea coffee beers and even treat you to a chip shop lunch.

It will have to been done on my drive as i won't be turning the key incase it wrecks the engine.
I live at de143dt burton upon trent.

Thanks Jon

Hoover with a small pipe attached, wire with duck tube on the end, just ordered a metal coat hanger and a camera tube as a final attempt
