    Nice !
    A lot of plug sockets now have an inbuilt magnet for exactly this reason.....

    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 !
