Dropped the engine oil to fit a factory pro detent arm kit and found this.Probably not good if the magnet had attached to something it was not supposed to:wtf:

It was still in the bung when I removed it but the magnet fell out when I placed the bung on a paper towel. Looking back through receipts to find out where I bought it from.I know I did not get it of ebay or that it is a cheap copy.Shit - that's not good. Where was the magnet? It could easily have attached to something rotating in there.
Have you notified the supplier or manufacturer?
That settles it then, as I'm definitely checking it when I get home. I'll get myself some high strength, permanent fit Loctite (the gap filling type) and see how that goes. Mind you, I may be asking for a response back from TPO and their suppliers in regards to a poorly assembled product.I have the TPO bolt and the magnet is a little loose.
I bought one similar from TPO Parts. Must check it when I'm back from working overseas.
In the site photo it looks like a resin compund (I can see an air bubble in the compound) and not plastic is securing the magnet in place?
