    ok so to start out i was putting a head gasket on a 95 jeep cherokee today and first i droped a 16 mm socket behind the motor and it ended up being between the transmission and the trans tunnel but this time i didnt have the vaulve cover on and i was able to stick my hand down there to get it (but it was a tight fit) so later on when im putting the valuve cover on i get to last bolt in the back and drop my 11mm deep socket back there and it went to the same place and i cant get to it nor can i reach it
    ive tried to use one of those magnetic teloscoping things( u kno what im talking bouyt?) but that didnt work and i tried toing from under the car to get it but cant i need to get it because i need it to tighten the last bolt and i dont have another 11mm deepsocket to tighten the last bolt

    so any ideas on how i can get the socket????

    (also ive tried rocking the car to get it to slide off of the trans but that didnt work eather):mad::(
