Car Talk: Toyota Camry seems to swallow driver’s credit card

Dear Car Talk: we possess a 2016 Toyota Camry. Yesterday, on my approach to a gas station, we pulled out my credit label and set it on a core console. When we pulled adult to a pump, we reached for my card, and it forsaken down between a chair and a console.

I squeezed my palm into a space and was means to pull a label brazen adequate to squeeze it. Ever a klutz, when we went to squeeze it, we pushed it behind instead.

When we attempted to squeeze it again, we couldn’t locate it. we got out and looked everywhere around a seat. we was on my hands and knees looking from a front and a behind of a seat. we searched from each angle. The label was gone.

It was like a automobile non-stop adult and swallowed it! How is that possible? My automobile is uncluttered; it is easy to see something out of place. Where is it? — Donna

I don’t know. But when we find it, we gamble you’ll also find a garland of singular socks.

I consider we’ve all finished what we did, Donna. A credit card, a key, a phone drops between a chair and core console. And as we strech your dual fingers in there to feel for it, we pull it serve into a abyss.

My theory is that your credit label slipped underneath a carpet. There are cuts in a runner during a 4 points where a chair is bolted to a floor. Try relocating a chair all a approach back. Then, from a building of a front seat, feel around for where a chair is bolted in. You should be means to find an opening in a runner there. If there’s no pointer of a card, pierce a chair all a approach brazen and try from a behind seat.

If that fails, and you’re unequivocally trustworthy to this sold label (maybe we spent months memorizing a 3 number confidence code), your automechanic can really find it.

The initial thing we’d do during a emporium is we’d blow dense atmosphere underneath a seat. We have a projection on a atmosphere hose that can blow about 150 psi of breeze underneath there. That’s a difficulty 4 hurricane. If something is there, it’ll customarily come out. If it doesn’t, your automechanic can always unbolt a seat. That’s not a large deal. It’s a half-hour job.

On a other hand, pursuit your credit label association and seeking them to send we a deputy label is a five-minute job.
