    Default Windscreen Blackhole

    Where does the stuff go that I drop between my windscreen and the dash, namely the screws out of the back of my tax disc holder and the allen key to get them out.

    How clumsy am I

    Cheers

    Ah, that old classic!! You're not alone m8!! Did exactly the same thing myself last year (and I know for a fact other members have done it as well - I won't name names! ) I now know to stuff a rag in that gap before doing it.

    I think it may eventually come down to the area behind the glovebox. When I got my windscreen replaced, I asked the guy to keep an eye out for the allen key and the tiny screw - he came up trumps with the allen key. The tiny screw appeared one day on the passenger footwell after I'd had the glovebox out.

    I always believed they entered a seperate dimension along with odd socks and silver dust valve cap covers

    Ah well, I will just bide my time. All well and good these fancy tax disc holders until you need to change the blooming tax disc

    Glovebox comes out easy, drive about for a few days, do some good swing in corners to shift the bits, and have a look, if broken glass finds it's way into the footwell, i'm sure the screw will as well, 4 torx and its out btw.
