    I got a magnet stuck far down on my moms Accord, it stuck to a bell housing bolt I think. Stupid question but should I get it off? It hasn't done anything different yet.

    Well, it could dislodge, bounce off the road, and pwn someone's windshield or something.. Why would you just leave it on there?

    can you not just jack the car up and get it from under? might be a bit of a bitch but that might do it

    Same thing with the element. You can get to it from underneath, but you bathe yourself and the axle/lower suspension components and cross member with oil.. Total pain in the ass.
