Coins is Dash

So I went and picked my little nephew up from school the other day and he decided it would be funny to throw a nickel up on my dash and it went down the air vent. It's been rattling around ever since. It's annoying and I'm trying to find a way to get it out. Any suggestions?

That's what I'm talking about! Or, you could just drop the bass. That'll vibrate anything out!

My daughter put some type of arts and craft necklace bead on my dash. It rolled in the vent..of course. I got about 3 ft of brake cable housing from my box of bicycle parts and wrapped duct tape around the end with the sticky part facing out. With a lot of patience, I was able to fish it out.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Well guess I'll try to get a powerful magnet and see if I can get it out without trying to remove the dash. I'm just hoping it's not too down in there.

A nickel is not magnetic. Dash will need to come apart.

Does it sound like it's up top or down low? If it's down low on the passenger side, you might try removing the glove compartment and see if you can access it through the duct work. Another option would be to get a piece of rubber fuel hose, find a plastic cap from a spray paint can, drill a hole slightly smaller than the outer diameter of the fuel hose and insert it into the cap. Put the cap onto the end of the shop vac nozzle and duct tape it for a good seal. Turn on the shop vac and stick the rubber fuel hose into the vent and fish around. If the shop vac has enough suction it might hold the nickel to the end of the hose while you pull the hose out of the vent. Good luck!

It turns out it was actually pennies. I can see into the air vent from outside the car looking down into it. Does anyone have any idea how to remove the center dash air vent? The Manuel says nothing about it. I'll attach a picture of what I'm seeing.

It's like I'm so close but so far away. I tried the gum and tape idea but it won't grab it good enough. It looks like the dash vent would just pop out if I knew the proper way to go about doing it.

Since they are right there do you think a good shop vac might to the trick?

The shop vac can't get in a good position to acquire enough suction to pull them out.

I think someone mentioned something similar but can you rig up a flexible tube/hose to the end of it to get it into position? I am sure you can pop the vent somehow but I can't help with that.

Mechanical micro fingers.

I'm sure you could find them at a hardware store.

Good luck
