My Caddy and I are not getting along, it seems.
I had to check the power steering fluid, as it might have a leak. I only note that because Firestone wrote that they had to top off the PS fluid on Thursday.
Now, on the Caddy, the lid for the power steering fluid container is farily small. And, when I got it off (more easily that I expected), I DROPPED the lid down through the engine compartment.
And it landed on a little shelf. One of those shelves that, i think, is designed to cut "drag" on the underside of the car. Well, there it is, unreachable, but clearly within view. But not range of ANYTHING that would grab it. I keep shoving it around the little shelf with various implements.
To no avail.
So, do I remove the "shelf" and get the lid and then reinstall the shelf? Or go buy a new PS lid?
I would rather not spend the money.
But, then, I can see how to partially disconnect the shelf. But then, I would have to reconnect it with little white long plastic strips (tension ones, I think), and I would have to buy those!!
All because of fumble fingers.
