The strut tower are #13 metric. The ground nut on the driver side is #10 metric.

I just changed out my strut tower mount this weekend and also drop one in the driver side, luckily the mount came with a new set so I have a few spares now.

I recommend you take one of the other nuts off and match the thread at your local hardware store.

Sorry it does seem kinda vague; Metric socket 13.

I like the magnetic wand idea. I dropped a nut inside the engine bay one time and drove the car for a week. The following week I found the nut was still resting on the lower control arm.

If you think about it, $10 for a nut thats a great deal :D

FYI the whole care is metric.
