HK_Runner I did just that, while installing my Synergy handles- on only one side, thankfully. Fortunately, when I took off the lower trim piece, I saw it was sitting in a little nook. I carefully fished it out by hand. Have you taken on the lower trim piece already, and it's well below that? That magnetic pickup tool is your best best for an easy method.

One of these might work...

I have item D ... Its the longest and works the best. It says its discontinued on this site, but I went down to this place and they had them hanging on the wall in their inventory.

I drove my jeep after the bolt in pillar. No significant noise. Since there are cables in it, I worry about the electric problem because it is a piece of metal.

Yes, near the windshield.

Wouldn't a magnet just end up sticking to the metal frame?

m998dna May sound like a stupid question, what's a bot?

heitao4q Hi Guys,

First time Jeep wrangler owner.

Today I was trying to install a A pillar handle bar on my new 2013 Jeep Wrangler. But a bolt dropped into A pillar when I tried to loose it to install the handle.

I touched into the hole and felt some cables inside.

Does it harm the electric system?


Thanks,

Q
