Massive news I found the thrust ADAPTER!!! You have know idea how much happiness this brings me, I don't have you remove the oil pan to retrieve it. No engine support needed saved some $$$ there, no removal of the control arms, sway bar, steering rack and crossmember. Major PITA adverted.

This is how I did it, I used a magnetic pick up tool but needed much more length so added this thing and boom first go down the oil overflow hole it went missing in and found it.
