    Just got my 87 k5 last week, been fixing it up, new plugs, wires, egr, fluids, etc.

    I was removing the linkage of the wiper motor in the plenum chamber, and I lost my wrench down there! Now i cant find where it comes out, or if it does!

    What do i have to remove to get it back, i love that wrench!

    I'm thinking it was dropped down inside the cowl. If that's the case there's a plastic panel on underneath the truck just behind the fender you can pry off with a screwdriver. Hopefully it'll be laying there. If not then blast the opening where you dropped the wrench with a high pressure hose and see if it falls out (along with all the leaves and garbage built up inside there). If that fails you may need to replace the plastic panel and drive around making sharp turns to force it to fall down. Good luck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Its behind the firewall, where the wiper motor attachs to the linkage. I reached in that plastic pannel, under the truck, nothing there. I might have to drive around and see if anything falls out, doh!

    DO you mean the cowel box at the base of the windsheild.....Uhhhhhh might come out one day when all the leaves and crud below it rot out then it will fall out the drain hole above where the fender bolts to the rocker. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Try to fish it out with a magnet on a flex deal. It a spring deal about 2 ft long wil a magnet on one end.

    You wouldn't beleive all the garbage that will come out doing this. Just use a garden hose with a nozzle.
