Made this little video after loosing a plug in the tinware yesterday. Hopefully it will help others.
A lot of plug sockets now have an inbuilt magnet for exactly this reason.....
True it’s a lot easier now
Do you have to pay a subscription to watch you tube.
No just may ask you to sign up just ignore
You don’t even have to go to YouTube - just click the “play arrow” on the image, in the post above, and it will play, without leaving this window at KC.
My plug sockets have rubber inserts that hold the plug. Good trick though..
Yes first mistake I made when I got my kombi in 198o and tried to play mechanic - took me 2 days to retrieve it - magnet with sticky tape on end of flexible soldering rod did the trick fishing around - never played mechanic again since / good vid btw
Another trick is to use a piece of garden hose, about 4”/100 mm long.
Push the plug insulator into the hose and then use the hose to fit the plug to the head.
Once they plug is seated, just pull the hose off and go again !
I thought that was normally what happens,it wasn't doing that yesterday for me.It stayed as a black screen,working today thanks .
Any plug sockets that I've had also had the rubber inserts
