Here is one that is a little off beat...
I was out in the desert shooting my AR-15 the other day and I was using the door/window sil to steady rest. (Of course this was not from a moving vehicle ;-)).
Two cases ejected onto the dash and proceeded to fall into the defrost vent hole...tinkle, tinkle...WTF. Way outta sight and down the hole. I moved the selector to defrost and heard them fall even lower. Well, I ain't gonna tear the dash apart to get them out but was wondering??
Will they just fall to some low point and not cause a problem or can they get tangled up in something on this little Jeep??

After 40+ years in the shooting sports, I have seen plenty of ammo & brass go down defrost vents. Usually it is not an issue. My '86 ranger went to the bitter end with 5 rounds of 45acp in the system someplace. At least 6 years with them in there.
I am sure the techs here can tell you all kinds of stories about wht they have found in evap cases - perhaps we should trade some tales. I found 3 snap-on sockets, all the same size inside one old LTD. I think the mechanic needed a new 1/4 drive extension...
I bet JJ & Chick can tell us of some wild finds.

Back when I was younger and able to do evaporators () a .22 cal bullet once , razor blades, a dead snake, (thank god it was dead) a few mice, (the ones that get caught in the blower motor cage were a bit messy) nests of other vermin from cars laying a while...Just to name a few things, I'm sure my mind will remember more, oh, sockets, many....Good ones too.. Craftsman and snap on... As stated above, not to worry as long as they don't hit a blend door.... Blower motor squirrel cages are a whole nother story....
Ahh, memory coming back..Safty pins, and "bobby pins"...Never see those anymore....

Thanks guys for the reply...I kind'a thought they would just fall into a black hole...but you never know.
After I put in that last compressor, the ac has been working great. It would not be worth a "F" in Las Vegas, but in Cedar City, UT, it's just fine. It's a little slow to cool but it gradually gets there. Biggest problem is the poor little motor can't hardly pull the truck, let alone a compressor!! Oh well.. it is a kick in the butt out there in low range and when I'm out in the boonies, I'm not in a rush anyway!

I couldnt resist so I want to add!! I had a 80's firebird come in the shop about 10 years ago with a heater leak, I pulled the heater cover then the heater and seen this nice little hole!got to looking ! there was a hole in the cover ! the back of the box etc they all aligned so when the customer came to pick it up I confronted him, he honestly knew nothing at that time later I spoke to him again and he had let his nephew borrow the car and he said he had a pistol laying on the seat and it had discharged?? LOL sounds kinda fishy ! I also have found alot of stuff through the years found $100 bill under the floor mat in a chevy van! (returned it without a thankyou or F U ) found an engagement ring, gave it back to the customer and he said his wife lost it and they had claimed the insurance on it ! and yes I have found ammo in heater boxes! makes you think about forrest gump!
