    My neighbor's mom is in town from Lafayette with her beautiful dark red 08 Justa. She just asked me to look at a problem she has. She was driving around with some Mardi Gras beads on her dash and they fell down the defroster vent just aft of the windshield. She was able to fish out a loop and has tied off the loop so she doesn't lose it, but the rest of the string won't come out. This is a long string of beads with balls about 1/2" in diameter spaced about 1/4" apart on a string. She's afraid to pull too hard for fear of breaking the string. Anybody have any recommendations?

    I'd pull out the cabin air filter & have a look from down there. If you get lucky they may pull out from below.
