I need to change the engine oil anyway so not the worst thing to take the pan off, but dreading if i do and its not in there. I was just shocked at how easy it came out compared to everything ive read and seen. I literally put my hand on it to get a grip and feel for it and it just fell out and onto the floor.

@noodels.. that thread only had 7 pages.

Ah thanks, im on my work network so certain image hosting etc is blocked so couldn't see.

I'll have to take the oil pan off on Monday when im off and see if they're in there and then go from there i guess.

I would have to do some testing to be sure, but I don't think the piston can find it's way down inside the chain case even if you tried.

The are a few hiding places on the subframe and the underbody plastic where the parts can hide very well.

Yeah i've been trying to be optimistic and think so, so going to have a good look again. There seems to be a large hole immediately downward as you feel the empty hole the TCT slides into, is it not possible to have dropped into there?
