ok im changing the ignition rotor (the thing behind the distibuter cap) and i dropped the set screw and by luck it landed in some kind of plastic catch pan or a water gaurd dont know which. how can i remove this thing to recover my screw? if it helps i have a 1990 dx.
crawl up under the car. There are some plastic screws that hold all that crap in. I would just take them off and leave them off, they are always a PITA. They are just splash guards but you will not have any problems by not using them.
