    First post on the forum - seeking advice...

    My son dropped his iPhone whilst sat in the back seat of my 2012 Range Rover Sport and the phone has literally disappeared (slid) into the plastic heating vent under the seat. I know the phone is in there as I can see it (and hear it when I ring it) however I can't get to the phone as it's too far inside the plastic vent (it's past the initial 'bend').

    I'm looking for some advice as to how big a job it will be to (presumably) remove the vent in order to get to the phone - I'm assuming (but it is only an assumption) that the plastic casing that's under the seat fastens into some pipework that runs to the engine compartment however I'm not sure whether I get access from inside the car (seat / carpet removal?) or underneath.

    All advice gratefully received!

    Fashion a tool to scoop it out using a wire coat hanger or similar?

    Mobile phone lost in the rear of a Range Rover Sport info required.
    Well that must have an award for ‘most unusual information’ request that I’ve ever seen in any of the LR forums, but it makes a change on what tyres or battery can I fit. :D

    What is in your wallet?






































    Hopefully an extended warranty or breakdown cover.

    Try a piece box poly strap ( car thieves favourite for old car theft)
