Lost my windshield nuts!

i removed the windshield to clean and the captive nuts under the fairing that it screws into fell inside apparently. What is the easiest way to get into that area so that I can retrieve them and reinstall? Help!!

No Worries

There are plenty of them available on Ebay for a few dollars.

I think you also can get some at home depot/large hardware store (US) in a pinch but I can't tell what country you live in.

If you mean the rubber insert that the windshield screw threads into they are called Well-nuts. Your local auto parts store should have them. I replaced mine a couple weeks ago and found them at Napa auto.
