Had a van serviced at a dealer once.Brought a wingnut that had been left on the motorbox into the service manager and he had no idea what it was for.Explained it was supposed to hold the air filter cover in place.Because of this type of thing I usually do my own service.

I think you had the mechanic that did a C of A (yearly certification) on my airplane. I picked it up late at night - returning their loaner) and took off. As I was climbing over a small mountain range in the dark I noticed that the throttle was loose in the dash so I pushed it in all the way and wiggled it. A flashlight fell down from under my dash - still on. I was very cautious about adjusting any of my controls on my 1 1/2 hour flight home. After the weekend I received a phone call from the service center asking me if I had found a flashlight in my plane.
I was lucky that was the only thing that was loose and fell "off" in the dark.
Makes for "pucker power".
One difference between planes and RV's: With planes take offs are optional, landings are mandatory!
