    My 3 year old daughter has pushed my petrol card down through the tiny gap on her window. You can just see the top of the card between the door and the window, but you can't get at it.

    My car repairing ability is very low, but know the garage will laugh at me if I ask them to sort it out and think I could probably handle a screwdriver as I'm quite good with that kind of thing. However, I have no idea where to start! Someone suggested putting a thin knife down too to see if that will flip it up. I'm worried it might cause more damage. Any ideas?

    Since joining this forum, I seem to be finding more problems, but luckily youare all so accomodating with me. Thanks!
