Pound key lost in seat and rattling!

Hi, my girlfriend lost a pound coin out of pocket and it's rattling in the brackets of the passenger seat, forward of the where the seatbelt clips in! I can see it, but can't get to it! The seat doesn't have storage, so I'm looking for ways I can get it out without dismantling it. I've searched but with no luck. Any advice?

I'd rip the whole car apart for 50p let alone a pound!

Small tool with double sided tape attached to it. Manoeuvre towards pound coin and it should stick to the tape.

The seats come out very easily. 4 bolts and two plugs. Carefully remove the seat (sills covered with a blanket). Then take it inside and have a rummage around while it's turned upside down. It might fall out simply by turning the seat upside down.

Thank you, will try the tape first, if not I'll take the seat out! I'm very very picky about noises coming from my car, with my old 1.2 Sport, I had them removed the whole dash to sort out a rattle!

What exactly were you doing with your G/F to make a coin drop out of her pocket

Haha, she never puts her change in her purse, and she was wearing a dress with shallow pockets so it fell out! Now back from work so going to give it a go! Thanks
